|Locate Structural Building Problems|
This would involve reviewing blueprints or building plans after the architect and engineer are done. A good example of this would be heating ducting, plumbing pipes or electrical wiring that would create problems with the structural components of the building.
Even the best engineers, builders and architects can complete a set of plans to the best of their ability and think they got every possible problem corrected only later to find out that a waste pipe for a toilet is running right through a structural beam.
Don't let this happen to you. I have consulted for
contractors and homeowners after the fact. After the building is
completely framed and the plumbing contractor needs to put a toilet pipe
were a structural framing member is located. Now they're asking me how
can we fix this, how much is it going to cost and of course the blame
game of whose fault is it so we can charge them.
