Seismic Retrofit & Renovation

Seismic Retrofit & Renovation

Better prepared to help you better prepare.

Morley has always responded to the repair needs generated by seismic events throughout our history. In recent years the economic importance of seismic performance has come to prominence. Prudent owners and their lenders now look beyond the life-safety level of most current codes and proactively plan to limit downtime and financial loss. Some have special needs for uninterrupted service; others want to preserve the treasured architectural features and materials of historic structures.

Morley Construction Company offers you vast seismic technology experience, a specialized team and an innovative approach to the seismic retrofit and renovation of existing and historic structures. In fact, we were one of the first contractors in the U.S. to retrofit a major occupied structure with a base isolation system. Another significant milestone: we were one of the first contractors in Southern California to retrofit a concrete building with a friction damper system.
