    Hello Experts:

    I’m losing sleep over a serious matter which is narrated below:

    My tenant has installed a flex printing machine on the first floor of my 3 storey RCC building. The RCC building was erected in 1964. The machine itself weighs 850 kgs.

    So, I like to know whether it is safe to allow the machine to operate on the first floor. Besides, how much weight can such an RCC building withstand?

    Thanking you in advance….
