Vernier Building Seismic Roof Upgrade and Mechanical Unit Replacement

MCE provided engineering calculations intended for design of the canopy using solar panels, structural repairs to meet current seismic loading, and analysis of lateral loads due to replacement of mechanical units. Seismic loading and wind loading on new mechanical units were based on estimated replacement unit weights. The criteria that all new mechanical units weigh less than existing and that framing members at replacement mechanical units be verified for capacity.
