Retrofit1 is a California design and build construction specializing in soft story retrofitting and commercial accessory dwelling units. California ordinances are currently targeting residential and commercial properties with structural designs that don’t do well in large earthquakes. While ADUs are all the rage for residential properties, most don’t know the state allows commercial owners to add additional units on site. This week, we are joined by David Tashroudian and Helen Fower with Retrofit1 to better understand the opportunity, what California law outlines in the rules about commercial ADUs, and ways to find them in your local market.
