Avoiding Costly Delays with a Multi-Unit Residential Building Code Analysis

May 9, 2017

Burnham recently completed a code review of preliminary drawings for a new multi-unit residential building in California.

The review helped the design team amend their plans, a four-story building with multiple roof decks and a large parking garage, to meet code requirements.
