Los Angeles launches seismic program with compliance notices

December 4, 2017

As Los Angeles kicks off seismic program with compliance notices, large healthcare systems are factoring regulations into their capital plans, according to an article on the Construction Dive website.

The Los Angeles Dept. of Building and Safety has started to notify owners of older city concrete buildings of their compliance obligations under a new seismic retrofit regulation.

Scripps Health announced a $2.6 billion construction program that will see necessary seismic retrofitting at two of its five San Diego-area medical campuses, as well as a new oncology center and acute care facility at two others.

Facilities with non-ductile concrete must submit a retrofit checklist prepared by a civil or structural engineer within three years and then proof of compliance — or plans to comply — within 10 years. All retrofits must be completed within 25 years.
