RE: Plan check submittals and shop drawings

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Standard practice on the East coast is for the design engineer to
connection loading, and the detailer designs the connections. The AISC
guidelines of standard practice, a primarily East coast document,
that design drawings are to have beam reactions clearly indicated on the
contract documents in support of this practice.

I do not know if the Midwest follows the same practice.

I am in California, so maybe some one east of the Mississippi can shed
additional light on the subject.

Your description above accurately describes current practice in the
Midwest, if you consider Texas to be a part of the Midwest.
