Transforming Construction Challenges into Success Stories: Window/Door Replacement Issues

At Oasis Engineering LLC, we don’t just see construction challenges; we envision opportunities for growth and innovation. The recent window/door replacement project for a property that sustained Hurricane Ian damages, offered us a unique platform to showcase our expertise. With meticulous attention to detail, code compliance, and client-centric solutions, we navigated complex engineering terrain to create a future-proof construction experience.

The Challenge:

Imagine stepping into a building, where every window and door reflects cutting-edge design, ensures safety, and promises longevity. But what happens when hidden deficiencies surface? From missing screws to improper edge distance in sliding glass doors, the challenges were real but not insurmountable for our team. 

Our Approach:

  • Identifying the Challenge: During the initial inspection, we reviewed the deficiency list supplied by the Building Department to the property owner. This list pinpointed some of the issues with the installation of several sliding glass doors and swing doors, highlighting areas where immediate attention and expertise were required to bring the installations to compliance.
  • Innovative Solutions: With a seamless integration of engineering knowledge and creativity, we devised comprehensive remedial action plans. Our solutions resonated with sound engineering principles, bringing it all together in a detailed engineering letter and report with supporting documentations, applicable wind engineering calculations and Florida Approved Product installation requirements..
  • Regulatory Compliance: Navigating the complex web of local codes, regulations, and engineering requirements, we ensured that every action adhered to the 2020 Florida Building Code (FBC) 7th Edition.
  • Collaborative Execution: Imagine the taste of success that comes from effective collaboration with contractors. Our transparent communication and expert guidance ensured swift and accurate remediation, building a structure that not only meets the eye but also stands firm against the test of time.

The Outcome:

The final result is not merely a well-constructed site but the realization of two major milestones: approved permit inspection and approved permit closure. These achievements reflect the satisfaction of clients and the stringent adherence to local codes and regulations, underlining our commitment to success.
