Charlie,

I would assume that if one follows the "Prescriptive" method, engineering is
not required. Similar to when a plan conforms to the section on "Conventional
Framing Requirements" of the UBC, then  engineer's signature is not required.
The owner or contractor assumes that he can save money on Engineering Fee by
just conforming to the Prescriptive Standards, including the use of items that
would not have been required if engineering was provided.

Just my opinion.
