Safety Is Our Priority
Seismic retrofitting is about making your building safe during earthquakes, both the quakes you feel and the tremors that you don’t. We understand seismic demand on structures, and with a recent uptick in large earthquakes near urban centers, we endeavor to make every structure we work on sound.
Historic San Francisco Seismic Retrofitting
Saarman’s first major seismic retrofit project was San Francisco’s Hotel Majestic in 1985. This historic 1902 structure was the only hotel left standing after the Great Earthquake and fires of 1906. We restored the hotel to its original turn of the century grandeur and elegance under the watchful eye of the San Francisco Historical Society, while making sure to upgrade the structure and support to modern standards.
Seismic retrofitting is an integral part of all restoration, rehabilitation and reconstruction projects we have performed since 1985. We look forward to bringing your structures into the 21st Century!
