The Mandatory Soft Story Retrofit Program (MSSP) was created in 2013 as part of San Francisco’s Earthquake Safety Implementation Program. The program requires owners of older, wood-framed, multi-family buildings with a soft-story condition to make seismic upgrades that can ensure structural safety during earthquakes. While certain neighborhoods have more at risk structures, there are buildings across the city that are not foundationally prepared for an earthquake.
