We are a one stop shop
We provide Full Service for Soft-Story and a single family home Seismic Retrofit Solution.
We look at each asset afresh – buildings, campuses, property portfolios or entire districts – to find improvements that bring maximum value and resilience.
Over 15-plus years, Retrofitting-CA has worked on more than 1,000 projects around Los Angeles area to repair, reconstruct, refurbish, reconfigure, re-invigorate and restore value to buildings. These include high-profile models for better building performance such as Unilever House’s award-winning retrofit.
Value has many dimensions. We consider financial, environmental and design performance alongside market risk and occupant wellbeing. Our analysis starts building owners and occupiers in the right direction by helping them choose the surest way to make their assets work harder.
Results often exceed expectation. Our interventions helped revive a 90-year-old building. It became not only an A-grade commercial space, quickly occupied by blue-chip tenants, but also the first heritage-listed building to attain the top grade in office design, an environmental rating that also considers productivity and cost.
Expertise that adapts
With integrated skills in consultancy, design and project management, we can take projects from concept to delivery. Or we can bring sharp focus to one element of asset optimisation, such as post occupancy evaluation or retro-commissioning.
We focused on energy efficiency measures to enhance corporate sustainability and reduce costs at its 38-acre research campus in La Jolla, California. We identified and implemented energy-saving projects that cut annual operating costs by more than US$1m and carbon by 5,000 tonnes. The projects paid for themselves in less than six months.
Solutions for a world of challenges
We have the technical expertise and global insight to meet local requirements anywhere. But our know-how goes beyond solutions with readily quantifiable benefits, such as low or zero carbon technologies. Our building performance and systems specialists analyse occupant satisfaction feedback from buildings worldwide. Knowing what makes occupants happy, healthy and comfortable, we can align technical and human performance to deliver value beyond cost savings.
Whatever the benefits sought by asset managers and owners, we help realise their true value with tailored investment advice and a market-tested approach.
