After the 1996 Northridge earthquake, this 4 story commercial building located in Beverly Hills required extensive seismic retrofitting. The ultimate solution included wrapping a steel frame around the exterior or the entire building. Three dimension computer programs were utilized in the design, allowing for photo-realistic visualization and the precise placement of attachments.

Actual work on the project was restricted by the city to the hours of 6 PM to 10 PM. Taking this into consideration, the design assured that all tasks could be completed within these short working hours.

Due to the novelty of the design solution, the owner of the property required a peer review of the design.
