What is Retrofitting ?

Retrofitting is the process of modifying something after it has been manufactured.

Retrofitting a building involves changing its systems or structure after its initial construction and occupation. This work can improve amenities for the building’s occupants and improve the performance of the building. As technology develops, building retrofits can significantly reduce energy and water usage.

When performing retrofitting of buildings, we provide complete structural engineering services . Our experienced engineers work closely with our general contractor to ensure the client’s financial requirements, scheduling needs, and tenants are adequately served without compromise to quality.

A good structural design tailors the project to the scope and scale of intended use while taking possible future uses and expansion into account, and is efficient, safe, and uses the appropriate sizes and strengths for the structure’s use.Probable loads on roofs, floors, and other areas must be analyzed with the design adjusted accordingly. Structural and site design are completed together to produce a consistent style, efficiency, and range of uses when retrofitting existing buildings.
