Seismic Retrofits Increase

Simpson-UFPThe H.E.L.P. Team has seen a significant uptick in the number of Seismic Retrofits. Clean Energy Works now can incorporate seismic strengthening into projects as a home safety and health measure. H.E.L.P. will plan your project using the City of Portland Building Development published guidelines for prescriptive seismic strengthening. We employ recommended processes, plus recommended hold-downs, anchor bolts, etc., as detailed in the guidelines. We’ll draw the plans, acquire the permit and schedule the final inspection.

  • Safer to live in
