Saunders Construction, Inc. specializes in “Commercial Seismic Retrofitting” and “Prevention/Proactive Structural Repairs” in the Commercial/Industrial office and retail arena. Completing over 2,000 seismic retrofits and a variety of necessary and proactive structural repair projects since 1979.
A Seismic Retrofit provides existing structures with more resistance
to seismic earthquake activity. This process typically includes
strengthening weak connections found in roof to wall
connections, continuity ties, shear walls and roof diaphragm.
Saunders Construction is known in the industry for our expertise performing seismic retrofits or structural repairs while buildings are occupied. We have skilled, in-house crews trained to provide the highest level of customer excellence to minimize business disruptions during construction.
The project consisted of a supplemental voluntary seismic strengthening to improve the continuity of the roof diaphragm and enhance the lateral resisting capacity of several wood-framed shear walls to two single-story church buildings. Saunders coordinated with the owner and MHP on a regular basis during construction to ensure the quality and efficiency of the construction. The project was successfully completed on time and within budget.
Saunders’ competent employees were able to provide prompt and accurate work in a timely maner. With good communication efforts, the completed projects became a rewarding process with little hassle and few change orders.
In particular I like to call upon Saunders’ services when I work with large, corporate clients that expect a high level of communication, experience, quality, and service. Because of the nature and expectations for these projects, I include your firm to help the project progress as smoothly as possible. In turn, we create a stong “team” for the owner by working with a consultant, engineer, and contractor that have specific experience with their project. Ultimately, the owner benefits from this collective effort, because each team member brings suggested repair scopes to minimize construction costs while maximizing the effectiveness of the repairs or improvements.
The seismic retrofit project is just another example of your expertise. This project was completed on schedule, within budget and with no tenant complaints. Your work is always completed in a timely manner and with minimum interruption to the tenants.
Thank you for performing the seismic upgrade quickly and efficiently. Your crew worked diligently each day and worked without interrupting our occupants inside. All parties involved were pleased with Saunders’ performance!
