When Do I Need A Woodstock Structural Engineer?
Looking to finally put up that shed in your backyard, renovate an existing structure or undertake some other project in Woodstock? It may surprise you to learn that in most cases hand drawings of your intended project are no longer accepted by city or township engineering departments and you must submit plans stamped by a certified Woodstock Structural Engineer. Your city or county Building and Safety Department, Department of Public Works, Planning Department, or municipal utility will be able to advise you about code requirements and what permits, plans, and maps are required, if any.
