The original Casa Olga building was an eight-story, reinforced concrete flat slab structure with reinforced masonry shear walls.  The building served as a convalescence home until new owners purchased the building in 2012 and decided to convert it into a boutique hotel.  SGH completed a seismic risk assessment of the existing structure and developed a retrofit program for The Epiphany.
