The city of Beverly Hills does not currently have a mandate for the retrofit of existing non-ductile concrete buildings. However, work is underway to develop a seismic retrofit program intended to reduce the risk of earthquake-related damage and ensure life safety in the city’s commercial and multifamily buildings. See the links in the sidebar for information on the program’s progress and key dates.
The proposed seismic retrofit program for the city of Beverly Hills may include existing non-ductile concrete buildings that have the following characteristics:
- Concrete construction with inadequate reinforcement
- Designed prior to the 1981 adoption of the 1976 Uniform Building Code
Many structures within Beverly Hills have been determined to meet this description and may be impacted by the intended ordinance. A visual field survey and permit records research have been performed to identify structures with the above listed characteristics. Approximately 110 buildings in Beverly Hills were identified and may be impacted by the intended ordinance.
To date, there has been no timeline established. Refer to the links in the sidebar for more information.
