FTF Holiday Party

We enjoyed an engaging team building cooking party at Jordan’s Kitchen as our holiday celebration. This fun learning activity proved that we are a terrific team, not only in engineering, but also in cooking.


Apartment Retrofits Lead to a Resilient SF

The deadline for permit application for Tier IV properties (Ground Floor/Commercial/Retail) is September 2018!

Performing construction in occupied areas will be inherently more difficult and demands a well-thought out approach by expert engineers who collaborate with experienced architects and contractors.

In order to maximize seismic performance and minimize construction costs and disruption, FTF partners with leading architects and contractors to deliver efficient retrofit designs, and minimize headaches for owners.
