Bolt Down The Bay Area
Living in the Bay Area means living with the risk of earthquakes. If you lived here in 1989, you likely can remember exactly where you were during the Loma Prieta earthquake. Thousands of people were displaced from their homes and emergency services were completely overwhelmed.
Bolt Down The Bay Area has been installing pre-engineered residential seismic retrofit packages following the guidelines set forth by “Standard Plan Set A” since 2008.
The prescriptive standards of Plan Set A were developed and approved by the Structural Engineers Association (SEA), the International Code Council (ICC), California Building Officials, Earthquake Engineering Research Institute (EERI), Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) and tested on Simpson Strong-Tie's earthquake-simulating "shake table."
