City of West Hollywood, Building Inventory Survey and Seismic Ordinances

Degenkolb Engineers assisted the City of West Hollywood in the development of their seismic ordinance program. Degenkolb worked hand-in-hand with the city’s building department to survey over 4,500 buildings within the city limits. From this information, Degenkolb worked with the city to help craft a seismic ordinance to seismically evaluate and possibly strengthen Wood Soft Story Buildings, Non-Ductile Concrete Buildings, and Pre-Northridge Steel Moment Frame Buildings. As the city’s consultant and adviser, Degenkolb assisted the city with community outreach and presentations to the City Council.
