| $135

PageLines- retrofit_image1_300.jpgInstructors David Helfant and Jim Gillett

If your home hasn’t been bolted and reinforced, the next earthquake could cost you $25,000 to $50,000, or even more. Retrofit contractor James Gillett (Earthquake Construction) will explain the fundamentals of how to strengthen your foundation and structure of your wood frame home. With over 35 years of hands-on experience, Jim will share his knowledge of how to best install epoxy, wedge anchors, and other types of seismic-grade bolts, along with demonstrations with models, books, and photo slides. Save hundreds of dollars with efficient designs and proven materials.

Jim will be joined this session by engineer David Helfant, senior project manager at Bay Area Structural. David has taught at UC Davis, UC Berkeley and Cal State Hayward, and is a charter member of the Structural Engineering Institute. You could not dream-up a better team to teach this popular—and important—class!

Saturday, October 29 – 10am-4:30pm – $135 (plus ticket fee)
