Building Resiliency to Keep Santa Monica Safe and Sustainable
The first in the country to adopt a Sustainability City Program, today Santa Monica is recognized internationally as an award-winning safe place to live and work. Its residents and visitors enjoy the beach, biking and walking venues, great weather, educational and cultural programs, world-class retail and a thriving business community. To ensure the Santa Monica community remains healthy, safe and sustainable, the city adopted the most extensive earthquake building retrofit ordinance in the nation in 2017.
Optimum Seismic is Santa Monica’s partner in building resiliency to preserve the city’s hard-won achievements in sustainability and economic growth. Protecting buildings from collapse prevents the loss of business operations, tax revenue, critical business services and valued multifamily housing where employees and their families live.
