RE: Mechanical Equip. Support

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

The intent of the authors of Chapters 13 & 15 (I was one of them) was to 
have the same answer as the equipment was moved from a building support to 
a grade supported piece of equipment.  It appears that the CBC provided 
some departure from the intent regarding anchor design.  I was not part of 
the CBC effort and do not know the logic (or lack).

It appears, however, that this is more of a building official's 
interpretation and it is often better not to fight it.  But again, it was 
the intent to have the same answer.

Regards, Harold Sprague
