O’Donnell & Naccarato Assesses Buildings Damaged By Massive Nor’easter
In the wake of this week’s snowy Nor’easter, O’Donnell & Naccarato, Structural Engineers, located in Philadelphia, PA, Lehigh Valley, PA and Mountainside, NJ are out in the field responding to emergency calls of sagging and collapsed roofs. The large, slow-moving storm blanketed much of the Mid-Atlantic from the Washington, DC area to New York and beyond, with the hardest hit areas receiving well over one foot of wet snow. This most recent storm’s heavy snow and rain/sleet mix, in conjunction with the residual snow and ice from previous storms, can create snow loading conditions that exceed code-specified design loads engineers would have used to design these roof structures.
O’Donnell & Naccarato structural engineers will remain on-call throughout the weekend and around the clock to assure that distressed and damaged buildings may reopen as quickly as possible. If you have any concerns about your facility, please call 800.607.7284 for immediate assistance in assessing your specific situation.
