Chapter 5. USE OF CONDITION EVALUATION STANDARDS
The inspection and rating of glulam arches and heavy timber trusses will
be useful only if evaluated and used as a basis for action. While the higher ratings
may require only a cursory review, the facilities engineer must conduct a more
detailed inspection of the structures that receive lower ratings. Such an inspec-
tion may result in reclassification of the structure. If the inspection verifies the
need for action, further study may be required to establish the cost of repairs,
and possibly to evaluate the economics of making repairs versus demolition and
replacement of the building. A suggested implementation method for the inspec-
tion results is shown in flow chart form in Figure 5-1.
