We completed a structural inspection of all pallet racking in Cummin's Fort McMurray warehouse in Taiganova. There was some damage due to the forklift rubbing against the bottom beams but nothing to cause any concern.
Based on our review of the pile specifications and review of achieved pile torques, the screw piles were adequately installed and are:

Benefits of Permanent Wood Foundations
A permanent wood foundation (PWF) is a strong, durable and proven construction method that has a number of unique advantages over other foundation systems for both the builder and the homeowner.
Benefits of permanent wood foundations:
This week we completed an inspection on a house with a PWF in Abasand. The studs were visible from the mechanical room. They were 2"x8" at 16" O.C. There was no visible signs of moisture. There was slight bowing on a portion of the PWF but was of no structural concern.
We designed a winch bracket to be used on one of the pontoon boat skids. This allowed for the winch to easily fit onto the boat skid. It was mechanically engineered to allow the full weight of the pontoon to be pulled up from the tailing pond and onto the skid.
The concrete foundation walls of this attached garage needed replaced. We designed an ICF foundation to help protect the new wall against frost. During construction the garage roof was supported and the 3 exterior walls removed.
McAroe Engineering recently designed and engineered a CAT 797 Front Strut Install Tool for Steepbank Welding in Fort McMurray.
McAroe Engineering inspected a Preserved Wood Foundation (PWF) on Cornwall Dr, Fort McMurray. A portion of the back wall needed repaired. We prepared engineered drawings for the contractor.
We inspected the repairs and once we were satisfied we issued a PWF Compliance Certificate.
We visited Cummins shop and designed a stand to help their mechanics continue work on the engine. No time was wasted. Welders came in right after and fabricated the stand.
We completed the design of all the exterior steel studs & produced engineered drawings for Sanatan Mandir, Fort McMurray.
We are a small local Fort McMurray engineering company. Our rates are competitive and there is no need to fly engineers in from Edmonton or Calgary.
