Structural engineering in the Sea to Sky Corridor

All Twin Peaks Engineering Ltd. designs are completed in accordance with the British Columbia Building Code 2012 and National Building Code of Canada 2015. Additionally, due to the climate conditions in the corridor such as high snow loads, considerable care and detailed planning go into overcoming these specific challenges for all new construction in Whistler and surrounds.
