The SBCA (Structural Building Components Association) Northeast Chapter invited Jeffrey L. Tirey, PE SECB to their January 25, 2011 chapter meeting where he made a presentation on structural issues related to prefabricated trusses, unbalanced snow loads on trusses, drifting and sliding snow, and a review and comparison of ground snow loads in the Massachusetts State Building Codes for both residential and non-residential structures. Lively discussions with the meeting attendees contributed to an informative presentation. In their newsletter issued after the meeting, the description of the presentation stated, “Jeff knocked it out of the park.”
