The contractor could not proceed further until the receipt, review, and approval of the structural design of this appurtenance by the City of wayne Building Department.
The suspended fan ceiling is framed in wood and is mostly hung from the roof structure overhead. There are two wooden bucks that are hung with metal straps from the roof structure. The ceiling rafters are in turn fastened to the wood bucks with hurricane hangers. I have also used two aircraft cable hangers fastened to the wood rafters at the front part of the suspended ceiling canopy. The soffit of the suspended fan ceiling and the facia will be drywalled.
I am presenting here a drawing of the suspended fan ceiling that I submitted to the Building Official on Mar-08-2007 and the owner did get the review approval from the Building department on Mar-09-2007. The Owner is anxious to get this beautiful ceiling completed for a sneak preview of the facility upgrade on Saint Patrick's Day. I am sure the General Contractor and his great crew are going to make that happen.
