Re: Lumber Species in Phoenix

        Why not just phone an engineer in Phoenix and ask?  If this project is a go you'll probably want to retain a local engineer to do at least some of the routine inspections in order to save your client a massive amount of travel expenses.

Or, to say the client a day?s worth of your travel to field verify, assume a very low value of Fb, say 1,000 psi, and MoE,  maybe 1.5e6 psi.  Then, go forward with a very conservative design.  You could even isolate the equipment framing by calling for LVL or PSL engineered lumber, and forgetting that the existing framing is providing support.  Just some thoughts?

I suggest that you verify blocking,sizes of members, notches, dimensions of supports, allowable deflection, etc. by a visit to the site or else qualify your comments accordingly.
