Reflecting recent changes to state building codes, ACE designs the Main Wind Force Resisting System and specifies connections of Components and Cladding for structures subject to high-velocity winds. Our designs include:
A site-specific wind load analysis to develop design wind pressures that we apply to the design of the building framing and components.
We specify members and fastening and anchorage details to resist shear, overturning, and uplift forces generated by high wind loads for entire buildings or additions.
