Tilt-up alterations

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I am looking at a 1980 tilt up building where the client wants to enlarge an
existing 10' wide by 14' tall roll up door opening to about 16' wide. My
first response, without any analysis is...not a good idea. In the mean time
the architect is searching for the original structural plans. This
enlargement occurs in one location along, say 200 feet of wall. Does anyone
have any general thoughts about this type of alteration?
