Not going to get anywhere trying to fight something built to code. Plus an attorney owns the place.

No ones fighting.. I know codes are different all over. We have very odd and stiff codes here. We can't build a deck less that 24" off the ground to bottom of beam. It really cut's us out on a lot of decks.

Thanks for letting me know where you guys put your decks. We don't fallow your rules here. Here we do the thing called a Lanai and they often wrap all the way around the house. Makes it extra living space because we can be outside here year round
I think a lot of the architecture here is old Victorian.

Building a LPG terminal facility in Prince Rupert, BC. Our contract is the foundations for the 3 spheres being built to hold the propane. It's been an interesting project; gnarly weather, lots of blasting, the tear-down of the final remaining towers from the pump mill that closed in 01, some engineering , this 400t crane.

Re: Post A Picture Of Your Current Job -- Part II


We are planning to lift this faux brick enclosure up onto a rooftop in the city on Monday. It was prebuilt in our shop. We dont make the parts, just assemble. New antennas and radios installed. There is some existing equipment on site that will be moved inside the enclosure once set.

We drove it to site this morning. After checking the lights on the trailer i realized i covered them up with the banner. Had to move it before hitting the road

This was the first oversize, permitted load we've hauled in house. It typically gets subbed. This one is less than 12' wide and 10K lbs so, decided to do it ourselves. Getting the permit was a learning curve..

This material has been in our laydown yard for months. During tge first attemot to build it, we went to site to field verify some dimensions and found multiple issues. The specialty fab corp and the EOR were pointing fingers at each other for the mistakes. Then it got put on me, both were saying it is my responsibility to field verify before it is released to fabrication. I agreed with them on that but, we did not release it to fabrication. Once that point was made, everything got quiet for a awhile.

Finally, a SOW was agreed upon snd a PO released. We had to fab and weld new base plates on all support columns, punch new holes for columns in the main beams since all were improperly located. Rework all holes for vertical and diagonal FRP attachment to main beams. Once we did that and started assembly, we found they didnt provide any antenna masts so we had to weld some up. The panels didnt line up quite right so we had to cut one in the shop and then cut a new rabbet in it for alignment. I'm thinking a router would have been the tool of choice but, I dont have one.

Installed and calibrated some traffic counting cameras for a book store.

More and more stores are trying to gather as much analytics on their customers as possible.

Wrapped up a small factory / warehouse upgrade from 400w metal halides to 165w LEDs.



Increased the facility's lighting levels by 77.8%, dropped 162 amps off the lighting panels and reduced the heat of the breakers an average of 22°F.

That has to reduce the electric bill right? That's a big reduction.

Creepy ass motherfvckers. Maybe they should work on improving their service instead of spying on their customers.
