Ernie’s Used Auto Sales are experts in used auto parts and used truck parts that offer towing, car sales and secure on-site vehicle storage. WSA Engineering Ltd. was engaged to provide structural engineering services for the design of a foundation system for a proposed pre-engineered steel building.

The project involved the site survey, structural design, and drafting of the building footings, piers/grade beams and the reinforced slab. The building is a 100’-0” x 100’-0” pre-engineered steel building with the architectural drawings provided by Ferro Building Systems Ltd of Surrey BC.

The Ernie’s Used Auto Sales project required close cooperation with the pre-engineered building provider and the client, to address the design challenges of efficiently meeting loading requirements and specific measurements from the pre-engineered steel structure. WSA was able to provide a foundation design that met the requirements of the pre-engineered steel building and satisfied the client’s timeline.
