Re: Snow loads in Colorado

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Check out the Colorado SEA website. It is linked from the SEAINT website
(look down through the list for SEAC). Although there is no published info
on the website, you can order the 1997 Survey of Building Departments. Henry
Lopez is the contact. His address is shown on the order form. If you wish to
call him, his number is 303-447-2813.

I have used the survey, but it is best to call the local building
department, especially if you are seeking information on a site that is in
the Foothills or Mountains. I believe most of Colorado Springs (city and
suburbs) is 30 psf design snow load.
