Having a structural engineer available at a moments notice is a benefit I have, and I don't hesitate to ask him to look at many issues found (commercial property). Find yourself a good one, they are very beneficial in this industry, and will save your a$$. Get to know one well, many charge much less than I do. I use a retired engineer with a current license, real nice very intelligent man......John, come over here and look at this would you?...no problem Dale.
