I figure it's a local/state building code issue not FAA related even... of course you'd need to beef up trusses and load bearing walls where helipad is.

It varies by the blade diameter and rotary load rating of the helicopter. In addition the immediate surrounding area (size dependent upon heli type as well) has to be properly established to handle side vectored currents from the downdraft as well.

Are you a scammer that flies helicopters for a living by any chance?

Thanks

With that, I went to google and found this:
