Florida Wind Load Engineering Services 

UDA is proud to offer Professional Wind Load Engineering and Energy Calculations for Central Florida through a partnership with 
Stevens Engineering Associates of Orlando, Florida  

UDA Florida EngineeringAfter Hurricane Andrew ravaged South Florida, legislation was established to improve the structural design for high wind loads and other specific concerns inherent in coastal regions. To obtain a building permit in the state of Florida it is now required that all homes be engineered to accomodate these high wind loads and the appropriate Engineer's or Architect's Seal be present on plans. In addition, many localities will also require Energy Calculations to certify compliance with Florida's Energy Efficiency Standards. Consult your local building department for exact requirements in your area.

  • Foundation Design
