    Cfm calculation

    I am a home owner currently doing an addition. Our contractor had an inspection today and mention to me that inspector required a mechanical drawing and a letter from mech eng. with cfm calculations.

    Is all vague to me. I am trying to understand before paying an arm and a leg for engineering services. Is it a simple calc will do or is there a process / form to filed out? Location is San Francisco Bay Area.

    Thanks
