I am a little reluctant to give the location of the restaurant where no
sensible engineer will dine. I feel that in order to do that I would have to
check the building by engaging in a time consuming effort at engineering an
existing building that is under construction on my own time. And all of that
effort for ....... FREE.
However, my point is that there must be more than one building out there
is not necessarily "engineered" to sensible design standards. That was the
thrust of my comments.

I was being flipant in my remarks and did not intend them to be taken
literally. I understand your frustration as this sort of thing occurs in my
area as well. In my case it occurs when an architect convinces a client he
can design more realistically than the engineer who will overdesign the
project. In the course of his design, he bastardizes virturally every section
of the code but happens to be lucky (depending on whose shoes you are in)
enough not to be caught in plan review.
That's why I suggested you only tell the city:>)
