Fire Damaged Church

SQ Consultants were asked to check a church damaged by fire.  Our investigation revealed that the damage was limited to the roof only.  The client then asked us to check the existing foundation to see whether it could sustain the load of second story.  Test pits were dug next to the existing foundation and their size and bearing capacity of the soil checked.  Our calculations based on the site investigation showed that the existing footing can take the load of the second story.
