Penhall Company’s Seismic Retrofit Services department attended the Los Angeles Buildings Conference & Expo on Wednesday, September 27th, 2017.
This wonderful event, hosted by Income Property Management Expo and Apartment News Publications, was a great opportunity for industry leading professionals to come together to provide information about their products and services.
Our department was thrilled to be apart of this event and to have the chance to once again discuss the seismic retrofit process with concerned property owners. Having the ability to engage one on one with property owners is an opportunity that Penhall Seismic Retrofit Services does not take lightly. We understand that many property owners are less than thrilled with the mandatory retrofit ordinance in Los Angeles which is why we are committed to making it as simple a process as possible.
One of the many topics related to seismic retrofitting that we discussed with the Los Angeles Building Expo attendees was the many benefits of using a design-build company when completing their retrofit. Having your property’s engineering and construction all under one roof takes out the complications of having to deal with multiple companies.
To start, the transition from engineering to the construction process is much more seamless when the engineer and contractor are under one roof. In addition, once construction begins communication between the contractor and the engineer is easier, since they are actually colleagues.
Another topic we discussed with Wednesday’s attendees was the importance of utilizing an engineer and a contractor that is properly licensed and reliable. Property owners have the ability to look up a contractor’s license as well an engineer’s license to verify they are accredited and will provide you with the best possible service. Penhall Company, after sixty years of reliable service, has a strong commitment to hiring only the most reliable and qualified employees.
In conclusion, we feel so fortunate to have been able to participate in this event in the beautiful city of Pasadena.
