Retrofitting

FJ

This is the reinforcing of existing structures to make them more resistant and resilient to the harmful impacts of dangers. Retrofitting entails taking into account the structure’s design and purpose, as well as the stresses that the structure may face as a result of certain hazards or hazard situations, as well as the practicality and costs of various retrofitting solutions. Adding bracing to reinforce walls, reinforcing pillars, placing steel links between walls and roofs, installing shutters on windows, and improving the protection of key buildings and equipment are all examples of retrofitting.
