RE: Threshold For Structural Engineering

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I believe there are a few more criteria that determine threshold
requirements in the state of Florida.  Such as number of floors and
occupancy number.

I don't know if this is what you were looking for, but I hope it helps:
My experience in Florida leads me to believe that the building requires
threshold inspection by a registered threshold inspector if it is
as an essential facility or a designated hurricane shelter.  All other
structures are not required to be inspected by a registered threshold
My experience in New York City required certified inspections by a
registered inspection company for certain aspects of construction such
building stability, high-strength bolting, subgrade for foundations,
concrete materials, and welding.

Subject: Threshhold For Structural Engineering

The Louisiana Board is drafting policy to define minimum threshholds of
construction before an engineer's seal is required. I was asked about
should be a minimum threshhold for structural engineering. 
What are other states doing? What is the minimum threshhold before a
structural engineer gets involved? Is it based on type of construction,
span, etc.?
I appreciate your input.
