Warehouse Permit Consultation

Professional Warehouse Permit Consultation

Permit Process ConsultationWarehouse permits are no longer as simple as they once were. New codes and regulations have been adopted all to create a safe work environment. There is no uniform code for permits, so it’s very important to perform due diligence prior to any moving, adjusting, relocation, and movements related to racking. The best way to avoid hiccups in acquiring your permits is to first seek a warehouse permit consultation with a professional and experienced team.

Earthquake Engineering

Seismic engineering is crucial to the success of a project. In order to create a quality system, the safety and strength of the system must be analyzed. Seismic engineering, also known as earthquake engineering, takes into account not only the strength of the material, but also the durability of that material in the event of an earthquake. This allows warehouse racking professionals to give a seismically rated working load, which is especially important in Southern California where our seismic rating is relatively much higher than other parts of the country. Factory specifications do not account for seismic events, and therefore are considered only a static capacity.

All warehouse permits require engineering in order to determine the correct working load for a safe working environment. Improper seismic engineering can result in employee injuries, as well as damage to your facility and inventory. QMH uses a third party, state licensed structural engineering firm to conduct all preliminary calculations and structural engineering. This relationship ensures the integrity of our calculations. Throughout our fifteen year history with company, we have solved many warehouse concerns.

Project Installation & Completion

Warehouse permits and engineering are just one step in a project. The next step is carrying out those plans. The material being installed must match what the engineering calls for in order to meet the ratings in the plans. If the material does not match, the engineering does not apply. Installations are just as important as the materials being used. If the materials are installed incorrectly or incorrect parts are used, the system will not function according to plan, creating the potential for a dangerous work environment. Poor quality, damaged or obsolete materials greatly increase this risk and are often times the root cause of injury. QMH provides the highest grade material from a variety of certified manufacturers to fulfill engineering requirements.
