    A Structural Advisory Committee meets when projects involving special features or special design procedures are submitted for review.

    About

    The Structural Advisory Committee is a group of experts created under Section 105.6 and 106.4.1.4 of the San Francisco Building Code. A 3-member Structural Advisory Committee is formed to provide independent expert review and to make recommendations to the Director of Building Inspection.

    People

    Qualified potential committee members

    A 3-member Structural Advisory Committee will be convened for each relevant building project. They will be selected based on their knowledge in the structural engineering and construction issues presented by the project. One will be chosen by the Director of DBI, one will be chosen by the building's owner, and one will be chosen jointly.

     

    Potential members are selected from a list of qualified engineers submitted by the Structural Engineers Association of Northern California. All are approved by the Director of DBI.
