Projects, large and small, require compliance with the local codes, typically some variation of national model codes with a myriad of local amendments. This can be a daunting task for a design team working in a new jurisdiction. District of Columbia construction codes, including local amendments are particularly challenging for designers not familiar with the D.C. codes. Lourenco Consultants (LCI) provides a complete range of code consulting services to the development team through all phases of the project design and development process. These services include:
Preparation of code modification request. This request is a tool to address non-compliant items and may be a follow-up to other code consulting services. The request accounts for any practical difficulty or undue economic hardship that a builder or developer may face in strictly complying with the letter of the code and addresses the merits of the proposed solution to meet the intent of the code.
Preparation of alternative engineered design solution. As part of the code modification request, LCI proposes a solution that will meet the spirit and intent of the law without compromising public safety, health and welfare. Additional documentation may be produced to describe alternative materials and methods of design or construction and to show that they are equivalent to those required by the building code.
