About

Building California's Strongest Foundations

We at California Building Innovations are committed to helping you make your properties and foundations secure.

With a combined experience of over 65 years, our staff of contractors and structural engineers are here to assist you in keeping your properties soft-story and earthquake retrofit compliant. We service all of Southern California, working on both commercial and residential buildings!

Founder and CEO Raul Ramirez was inspired to enter the soft-story retrofitting industry after a visit to a Structural Engineers Association of Southern California (SEAOSC) event where he learned about all the complex regulations around the soft-story retrofit program. With his experience in renewable energy and construction, he wanted to build a company and team to help others understand the new mandatory retrofit programs and keep California safe and secure.

California Building Innovations understands that many home and business owners are always on the go, so we have created an exclusive system where homeowners, insurance companies, and architects are always informed on the progress of their project. We value every project and strive to help make your experience as smooth and easy as possible. Our unique scheduling system allows you as a customer to be able to follow the project from start to finish, including notes and images of the progress. We make sure that you know what’s going on throughout your project so that there are no surprises!

We offer a wide variety of services, and a FREE on-site assessment by our team of highly skilled certified inspectors.
