Site Parameters

Although a home high in the Sierra Nevada might have the same external appearance and internal layout as a home on the ocean's coast, the two houses will be "engineered" quite differently.  Our construction consultants are experts in converting your home plans into fully engineered designs that meet the specific requirements of your site.

 

First we'll ask you to provide us with your Assessor's Parcel Number (APN).  The building department responsible for the issuance of permits will take your APN and assign the "site specific" load requirements for the five natural forces listed below.  With this information we can then both quote and design your home.

Wind Load (mph)

Live Roof Load (psf)

bullet

Seismic Zone (1 to 4)

bullet

Exposure Rating (a to c)

bullet

Soil Bearing Capacity (psi)

These loadings then drive all structural considerations that our engineers use in the detailed design of your home.
