Deep knowledge of special building code and testing requirements. Specialized techniques to creatively and cost-effectively augment these structures to meet current standards.

Many of the California homes are at risk of sustaining severe damage in the event of a strong earthquake. Depending upon the strength of the earthquake and the proximity to the epicenter, many homes risk complete structural failure.  A sound seismic retrofit will prevent this from happening in the event of an earthquake.

An evolving understanding of seismic events and seismic regulations affects how we comply with buildings codes, address occupant safety, plan for resumption of normal operations, and design for lower construction costs.

JN Engineering offers experience-based seismic engineering services that give architects, owners, property managers, engineers, and contractors practical ways to achieve these goals.
