Re: CE or SE - No Arguments, just need some advice!

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
It is my understanding that a structural project that is reviewed by DSA or
OSHPD requires an SE. I have worked on Kaiser MOB's (medical office
buildings) including a radiology office, that never went to DSA, only to the
local building department for review. However a mammography light fixture
support did go to DSA.  IMHO, the project will ultimately require an SE if
it goes for permit and construction.
