Why should you consult a structural engineer?
Engineering services are mandatory for the design of wood-frame buildings that exceed certain limits. These limitations are set out in paragraph 220.127.116.11 of Division B of the National Building Code of Canada 2010.
Among these restrictions, it is important to consider the presence of structural elements with a range of more than 12.20m or 600mm spacing for small wooden structural elements. When the distance between structural elements is greater than 600mm the design must be in accordance with sub-section 4.3.1 (Part 4 – rules of calculation). For any Part 4 project, the designer must be an engineer (18.104.22.168 art).
The team at Genibois endeavours to make sure that your home, workshop or commercial building complies with the CAN/CSA-086-14 standard, more commonly known as ‘Engineering Design in Wood’.
Genibois has experience in and recognises all types of wood construction using a variety of techniques and materials. So do not hesitate to contact us for further information!
