Collapsed ice rink roof near Pittsburgh

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I came across some photos of a ice rink rink roof collapse last February in Rostraver Pennsylvania.  It was attributed to excessive snow loading from a storm.  Looking at the photos, the snow didn't appear to be more than a foot thick.  Only an interior portion collapsed the rest of the roof was unaffected.  Apparently one of the glulam trusses broke from the snow loading.  Does anyone have any further info?
