I would like to know whom I would contact regarding the particular protocols for building .. specifically

1) engineering protocols
2) legal restrictions
3) component requirements (e.g. metal, concrete, wood)

If anyone has a contact of a person (preferably with legal or legal exposure) who can answer specific questions in consult, I would appreciate it. I have had quite a few "I think that can be done" and "oh, that's not a problem", but none with personal experience.

Thanks in advance.
