RE: Congratulations to Matthew and Ed

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
	I'm amused because I also read a list of preservationists, who like to 
complain about all the $%^(&$# structural engineers that only know about 
new construction so always say tear it down and build new. All I know about 
 rehabilitation makes me dangerous so I'm definitely in the group called 
$%^(&$#. However, I am also a cheerleader for a couple of projects within a 
 few blocks of my house that will make two buildings, one built in 1846 and 
 one in 1889, good for at least the start of another hundred years or so. 
They will look as they did in the 19th Century, but LVLs, CMU, poured 
concrete foundations, etc. weren't original materials. Jim Getaz

I have made similar recommendations on projects. It is cheaper and easier 
to start over.

I like the humor there too with your medical metaphor. Sometimes as 
structural engineers we have to evaluate buildings and structures and after 
 about five minutes you want to recommend that a bulldozer may be the best
