Design Build Associates will help you obtain a structural analysis to determine whether your association will require retrofitting under the new municipal seismic ordinance. We will put together that scope of work and recommend qualified engineers to provide pricing for this initial analysis.
We would also recommend and obtain proposals from properly licensed and insured contractors to provide the physical testing required as part of the engineer’s inspection. We organize this process such that the Board can make qualified decisions to move the testing and analysis work forward. Once the testing and analysis is complete, should retrofit work be required, we will assist with the preparation of the scope of work, bid forms, plans and specifications to present to qualified contractors to bid the project. We then oversee the entire retrofit effort, beginning with the structural engineer’s design and continuing through completion of the seismic repairs.
