Have an engineer check the installation

    In proposing a retrofit design to a client, engineers should strongly urge that their firm or another competent engineer oversee the installation. As with the installation of the tower itself, failure will be at the weakest link. Reinforcement applications on a structure introduce hundreds of potential failure areas if the modification is not performed correctly.

    There is a large movement taking place as we speak to have inspectors invloved during modification projects. IT'S ABOUT TIME !! Look into the State of Washington and "WABO". EVERY permitted welding job requires a CWI [certified welding inspector]and even some level of NDT [non destructive testing]. There will be a significant level of rehabilitation coming for those who have not properly supervised modifications in the past. Paint specifications are becoming a popular topic of discussion too.
