Adaptive Reuse

Zenith's experience in seismic upgrades and retrofitting of non-ductile concrete and unreinforced masonry (URM) offers a high advantage to developers looking into converting older buildings from commercial to residential and vice versa. We have helped developers and investors run code analysis on existing buildings to see what is allowed by code and what would be required in a seismic code adoption sense for the building to comply. Our vast network of large general contractors also allows us to quickly assess the overall construction costs giving developers and investors a one stop shop for clear insight into the overall project numbers.

On the design side, we are familiar with a host of solutions to increase the structural capacity of an inadequate building, to changes in code, increased loads from new use, new penetrations and openings by using FRP wrap, shotcrete, external post tensioning, concrete enlargements and external post tensioning.
