Warehouse - Roof Blow Off

Dallas, Texas


During an extreme wind event, overhead dock doors blew in, allowing the building to pressurize causing steel roof decking to blow off the building. Steel roof joist framing experienced inelastic distress. Concrete tilt-wall panel damage occurred as building components were being pulled from the structure.

Our staff was quick to respond and provide engineering support so emergency shoring could be installed to brace the unstable structure. Once the building was made safe, our engineers performed a detailed structural condition survey to identify the structurally damaged members and establish the limits of the repair. TSA engineers designed the structural repairs and provided construction phase services while the repairs actually took place.
