There are many on both sides of the border who have concerns about water flow and drainage from stormwater generated by hurricanes, such as events in 2008 and 2014. This would include issues from ...

It is easier to do so when the Owner has been forewarned throughout the process that there is a contractual limit on duration and if the project schedule is extended additional fees will be required.

Shannon It is great that you pitched in.  I bet that some of us would like to know more about your book and where we might be able to acquire it.  I think it would be great if you could submit here a simple diagrammatical history of the ramp. I assume that when you say turn of the 20th century, you mean ...

I just came back from spending a few days in an ocean front hotel.  The room was fine (well, except for the veranda railing that did a lot of damage to the ocean view), all modern fixtures and finishes and so on.  In the bathroom, my head, and I am not abnormally tall, was completely above the mirror. ...
