fema-trainedSince the Mandatory Soft Story Retrofit Program (MSSP) was implemented in 2013, many San Francisco building owners are required to seismically retrofit the soft story of their building due to the frequency of earthquakes. A soft story is a “weak” part of a structure such as a garage, where the wall is weakened by empty space. In San Francisco, it is required that any wood-framed soft story with two or more floors above it, be retrofitted. P3 Construction is a full service contractor that will not only meet all of the retrofitting needs but will also help you smoothly move through the entire process. P3 offers a complete package with an in-house permit expediter, engineer, structural renovation crew, electrical and plumbing contractors and a Title 24 specialist. P3 has dedicated project managers, field staff, and many contractors who specialize in specific parts of seismic renovations and will assist property owners with their renovations. P3, with with their craftsmen crew, will ensure the retrofit is handled with care and is equipped to seamlessly handle all aspects of the project from demolition to the finals touches of paint.
