Welcome to the Team Engineering Blog
We want you to be part of our Team! Follow us as we post new blogs about our upcoming projects, construction tips and advice, engineering concepts, and company events.
Our blogs are intended to get you further educated on building construction straight from our Professional Engineers, Architects, Inspectors, and Project Managers at Team. Ever wonder how an ice dam occurs? What exactly is an LVL and why is it so strong? When do I need a structural ridge?
We’ll take some of the most common questions and industry misconceptions we hear and give you our expert opinions. The information we will provide is intended for general informational purposes only, but if you have a project specific question, contact us and speak to one of our licensed Professional Engineers today!

They can also double as fire protection, so they make a great choice for structural walls between… Read More »
We were recently involved with a plumbing design for a new apartment building with several design constrictions which created a challenge in selecting a water heater. In this building, each apartment needed to have an individual hot water system, had very minimal space, and was impractical to run gas piping to each apartment. This led… Read More »
We have many great clients here at Team Engineering. Among our favorites are the good people of CRJ (Community Resources for Justice). They recently asked us to inspect another property under consideration as a transition home for people who are working towards freedom again from incarceration. Naturally, the #1 rule in real estate applies for… Read More »
On a recent project, I was asked to estimate heating and cooling costs for a variety of HVAC systems on a large new construction commercial building. My research and results lead to some very useful insight that I find myself applying to many of my projects. Let’s start with the following table from NH.gov which… Read More »
On a recent trip to Moultonborough, I had the opportunity to stop by and see the progress of a residential project we helped to design this summer. This project is one of our many collaborations with Rourke Fine Home Building which continues to be a great partnership. We provided structural engineering services on this project… Read More »
Antique hip roofs tend to have a short sagging ridge. They get flatter over time. The attic insulation, if present, has a low R-value. There are frequently broken rafters. How do we make our old homes warmer and safer without stripping off the entire roof, frame and all? The ridges sag due to historical snow… Read More »
