Rockville, MD

SK&A Associate, Bing Rao, PE and Principal, Walid Choueiri, PE, SE, were invited by Montgomery County’s Department of Permitting Services (DPS) to give a presentation on “Multi-Family Wood Construction Inspections” for a group of inspectors and plan reviewers in DPS’s Commercial Building Construction Division.

Stemming from the challenges and ever-growing complexity in modern wood construction, the presentation was aimed at raising awareness of the gap and disconnection between code requirements on wood special inspections.  It also proactively recommended ways to improve the current practice in wood inspections.
