Location Inspections

Do you need to hang something from the roof? Get approval to drive a vehicle on the floor?  Make sure the building isn’t going to fall down around you?

Silverscreen Engineers can make a site inspection and follow up with a report to provide allowable loads, capacities, or safety considerations.

Fun Facts:

  • In the early 1900’s, the adopted code requirement for guardrail heights used to be 30″.  Unfortunately for the time, this is just tall enough so that if you are backing up it hits right above the knees.
  • Rooftops can be designed to support 10 pounds per square foot all the way up to 100.
  • Most of the iconic Los Angeles Water Towers are empty.  While originally used to help pressurize the water system, our expanded knowledge of seismic design has required that a large majority remain empty.
