Apartment Fire


When a fire occurred in an apartment unit, N-J was given the assignment to determine the limits of the damage to the wood-frame structure and design repairs to the salvageable portions of the wood-frame structure. A few of the wood roof trusses had been damaged by the fire that required repair. In lieu of replacing the damaged trusses, N-J analyzed the damaged trusses and was able to design cost saving repairs. N-J prepared a scope of repair and repair details that were to be implemented.
