Dear AT,

Basically we may have exclusive rooftop access on a 4 story apartment building and I am wondering how we go about finding what can be built on the roof.

Not sure who is qualified, or if it is something that we can begin investigating ourselves before contacting someone.

How does one begin to find out?...

If something is built and is more like a greenhouse or outbuilding, is that different than a real addition to the roof?

Could some type of modular shed be acceptable where one can't build higher?

Thanks! M
