Saunders Construction, Inc., founded in 1979, is a specialty contractor focused on asset preservation and risk reduction for older, existing buildings. SCI performs each construction project with experienced, in-house crews, allowing greater controls for competitive pricing, quality installation, and scheduling; while on occasion, engaging subcontractors, depending on the project. Our crews are particularly adept at working in heavily congested, tenant occupied buildings. Typical structural services include seismic retrofit, structural repairs (rough carpentry, steel, concrete & masonry), roof framing and roof condensation repairs for all types of buildings—concrete tilt-ups, apartments, soft-story, non-ductile concrete, unreinforced masonry, historical buildings and parking structures.
We are in the business of retrofitting buildings since 1984. It is a passion of mine to make buildings safe and perform well in case of an Event.
It has always been a concern to have a uniform design from Engineers.
I am always trying to make our clients aware of the need to find experienced engineers in the design of retrofits. They do not understand that when they get there building retrofitted by any engineer that the future buyers due diligence team may not accept the design! This is why the resiliency rating of buildings in a uniform way that is acceptable by all is a great idea! I think that this endevor is Fantastic.
