Snow Resistant Building Design

While it floats softly down through the air, snow can be deceptively heavy. If snow accumulates on top of structures, it puts an additional load on the structure and can cause serious damage, and even cause a structure to collapse. In areas that experience regular snow fall, buildings must be designed to withstand the snow and/or be designed with features to minimize snow accumulation.
