Load Bearing Wall Evaluation
Load-bearing walls are a critical component of your property’s structural system. These walls support the weight of your building and transfer it from the roof to the foundation. Changing the layout of these walls is a complex process that requires the expertise of a licensed structural engineer. If you are planning a home renovation or expansion project and are unsure if a wall is load-bearing, GreenWorks can help. Our team will evaluate your wall and determine the best course of action for your project. Don’t risk compromising your property’s safety, contact GreenWorks for a load-bearing wall evaluation today.
Engineering inspection and a building foundation go together. A building’s foundation must be robust so you can stand on it without having any security concerns. That’s why inspecting the foundation’s adequacy is unskippable. We, at GreenWorks, understand the intricacies of foundation adequacy so our customers can establish a solid base. Our engineering inspection comprises comprehensive frameworks to assess the foundation’s adequacy, providing an extra layer of assurance. With our foundation adequacy inspection, you can experience enhanced safety, cost efficiency, and more.
Commercial Structure Review
GreenWorks provides comprehensive commercial structure review services, covering structural analysis, foundation evaluation, load-bearing walls, framing, and roof structure assessments. Whether it be steel or wood-framed buildings, we can help ensure that your foundation is within tolerance. Greenworks can confirm that your commercial property’s structural integrity and foundation are up to current codes and standards. You can utilize our services for potential load-bearing walls to merge spaces. Framing assessment for additional weight loads in HVAC systems.
Steel Framing Review
During steel framing reviews, we can use the structural drawings and calculations to verify that the steel framing design is appropriate for the intended load-bearing capacities and structural requirements. We examine the connections between steel members to confirm they can withstand the forces and stresses placed on them. The verification inspection reviews the installation process to ensure the steel framing is erected perfectly and aligned with the approved plans.
Our structural engineer’s initial analysis will determine the structural integrity of a retaining wall to avoid soil erosion, which can create sloping water intrusion. During the review process, the engineer will discuss the current structural integrity of the wall and determine if engineered plans are required.
Framing Review VS Framing Verification
Framing review – We meticulously verify load calculations and mark any areas of concern to ensure your safety and satisfaction. In addition, if the framing and loads are inaccurate per code, we can provide plans for an additional cost to ensure your framing is in proportion with the standards of your city codes.
Framing Verification – Our licensed structural engineers thoroughly review your framing plans, checking for adequate materials and design. Contact us now for a reliable framing review and peace of mind.
Before pouring concrete during a construction project, our engineers evaluate it to ensure that the reinforcements, depth, proper materials, and footings are per engineered plans and meet the code. Within the report, any deficiencies will be noted, and corrections will need to be made before a revised report can be issued and the construction process can continue.
Mobile Home Letters
Mobile home letters are often required when getting approved for a mortgage or refinance. Greenworks can provide mobile home letters that assess the existing foundation regarding meeting the requirements of a permanent foundation as set forth in the Permanent Foundations Guide for Manufactured Housing from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, 4930.3G.
Our structural engineers are not limited to only addition or framing plans. Instead, we are ahead of the pack for architectural plans as well. Our architectural plans include documentation of the design and layout of a building, including floor plans, elevation drawings, sections, site plans, roof plans, and electrical and plumbing plans at every level of the building. We also ensure sustainability, energy efficiency, and construction details like doors, windows, stairs, and finishes.
MEP (Mechanical, Engineering, Plumbing) Plans
MEP plans include the layout, design, and installation of essential building systems focused on mechanical, engineering, and plumbing. The mechanical plans revolve around the nitty gritty of various components such as HVAC, equipment placement, ductwork layout, exhaust fans, and diffusers. Meanwhile, the engineering plans include information regarding structural design, foundation, framework, load-bearing calculations, reinforcement layouts, etc. Regarding plumbing plans, our engineers look into the depths of plumbing fixtures such as water supply, drainage, or sanitary systems to ensure smooth flow. Moreover, they do preventive maintenance to avoid leakage or clogged faucets.
