Structural Code Secrets for Existing Building Project Success

When renovating, adapting, or altering an existing building, the code-mandated structural requirements can have significant schedule, cost, and design impacts. The goal of the presentation is to equip owners and designers with some general knowledge of code requirements so they can better understand the structural implications of their proposed scope of work. Knowing and identifying the structural requirements early in a project will provide team members with a critical tool to better inform budget and schedule as a project moves forward.
