Is it a good idea to build a two story building on an existing one story foundation that was in a fire five years ago?
We are a non-profit organization that has purchased land and want to use the existing foundation. Should we?
So do you think our biggest problem is that the foundation is only for a single story building?
Would the best person to talk to be a structural engineer in town? What type of testing should we do on the foundation? To adress both the load and fire damage?
Would it be a better idea to start fresh with a new foundation?
Thanks for your help.
