I have never dealt with one.

Current NBCC 95 loads for rounded (e.g. Quonset) shapes was increased by
revision about a year or two ago. I'm not sure if it was also adopted by
default for OBC 97 but one might imagine that it would be prudent to
apply the revision.

You will probably need a copy of S136.
