About the Founder

My name is Aidan Leicester and I am the founder of San Francisco Earthquake retrofitting. Having worked in the San Francisco construction scene for over 20 years it wasn’t until around 2005 that I found myself working for an engineering company in San Francisco as a project manager that I became heavily interested in structural safety of residential and commercial buildings. During those three years I worked along side Engineers on an every day bases and gained invaluable experience.

When it comes to understanding the engineering process I believe I offer a unique perspective. Over the years I have been complimented by reputable engineers on my ability to adapt and compliment their designs.
