Our company does a lot of engineering for schools and hospitals.
We are on a first name basis with most of the folks at DSA in
Sacramento. We factor the loads by Omega when designing the
anchorage from the column or brace to the foundation, but not for the
overall stability of the footing or to check the soil pressure. We
only engineer the anchor bolts, base plate and welds for the omega force
If the folks at DSA in Sacramento are
reading this, I hope I am not "giving away" any secrets, as I have a back
check appointment up there next week.
