When using Preston or Hutchinson Builders’ cantilever loading bays, the following process should be followed to ensure adequate back propping is installed for your structure:
- A marked drawing, indicating the loading bay location, and a full set of structural designs should be sent to a structural engineer.
- These documents should be accompanied with the loading bay manufacturers’ design verification certificate.
- The structural engineer will use these documents to generate a temporary back propping solution. Click here for an example drawing.
