Project Detail

One of our projects is undergoing wind tunnel testing to establish realistic wind loading requirements for the buildings. The wind tunnel test takes into account the shape of the new building and the true shielding of the adjacent buildings. Also, the governing codes have inherent conservatism built in the analytical method to be able to cover all buildings and all shapes. Therefore, the wind tunnel test most likely will establish wind loads that are lower than that required by the Code which can result in a significant cost savings to the owner.
