The primary objective of the Independent Structural Design Review is to “assure the stability and integrity of the primary structural support systems”.
An Independent Structural design review is intended to provide an increased level of confidence regarding the predicted performance and safety of a building or project as documented by the design in the design criteria, the design and the design approach and structural design documentation. This is an objective technical review of the design of the project.
The review is intended to encompass an actual review of the design using independently generated calculations and not to be simply a review of the calculations previously generated by a Structural Engineer. It will establish whether or not the building or structure conforms to the minimum structural design standards established by the Building Code.top
