Team Engineering completed the architectural and structural design of a farmer’s porch addition to a colonial home. The porch construction was completed by Dube’s General Contracting, a frequent collaborator with Team Engineering. Dube’s General Contracting often gets involved early in the project planning process to enhance the communication between the engineer and contractor to ensure that both parties are on the same page. This communication allows for an efficient and practical design to be produced that meets all of the client’s needs. This porch was designed with conventional pressure-treated lumber. Pressure-treated lumber is required for exterior projects; it protects the wood from rot and insects. The foundation for this project was helical piers.
