We are the structural engineer on a new heavy construction project (7 floors of PT garage with 3 floor of residential aobve). There is a small 150x50 single story build on one edge of the site. The developer is unable to remove one of the tenants and therefore is asking us to design and incorporate a shelter structure around this existing building. A couple of questions, first does anyone know if there are any provisions in the code that would require the tenants to vacate while we construct the shelter? Second any code provisions that would require them to vacate during the construction of the entire project? Lastly should we acutally have to go through with building the shelter, any recommendations for loadings, details or advise would be helpful.
Thanks is advance for any response.
