New Foundation Plates

New Framing Clips

Finished Shear Wall

For a voluntary "Earthquake Brace and Bolt" Seismic Retrofit project, we installed a total of eight new shear walls to connect the existing house framing above to the existing concrete foundation below.

We obtained a Building Permit from the City of San Mateo, and then carefully documented the conditions before and after our work so the home owner could successfully claim their rebate from the EBB Program.
