    Only if the engineer who told them to put it there goes with them every time.

    Your post reminded me of a call I turned down ten or so years ago. Something about having to deal with the hole in the roof.

    I pulled it up on Google maps street view. Funny that the Google driver actually went through the place's parking lot here:

    I would clear the cars below because those covers can be tight. I send something similar through a skylight once.
    No, all pitched. The mechanical area is flat but theres a pitched section of the roof between it and the edge.
    The angle of the photo was a little weird because of how I was holding the phone, makes it look a lot less pitched then it really is.

    The guy that came up with the idea to put the fan there gets to service it.

    This fan is a bit similar to a Hooters I used to service years ago. Only their fan was farther away from the roof, and the roof wasn’t pitched as bad. Although it was on the second level of an outdoor mall, and had power lines very close by.

    See the hooters on the corner here. Look for the 2 makeup air hoods and 2 exhaust fans on the pinched roof. And it was a hooters so everything was nice and greasy.
    That place also had those propane tanks mounted on the second floor.

    I've had to visit some fans in precarious spots only to find they are direct drive.. A relief and upset all in one second.
