Dave, I presume that you are talking about lateral drift due to wind. There are code limits for seismic. You will get some flak from the MBS people, but it is not that big of a cost impact for the total structure. You might want to look at AISC Design Guide #3. Technically and typically no one is responsible for bringing this to the Owner's attention, but I think that it is wise for the structural engineer to be of service in this area to the owner. The code focuses on life safety. Serviceability should be the domain of the structural engineer.

I have given the client deflection criteria which I feel is appropriate so that the architect may use infill such as metal studs with EIFS with or without brick veneer. I suggested using .005h for this deflection criteria. The structure is one story restaurant, rectangular in plan, approx. 3000 to 3200 square feet. Our firm will be designing the foundations for the project. I would like to inquire what if any complications or responsibility cross over issues which some of you may have experienced and your opinions on how to circumvent these issues. I have read the article in structure " Who's Responsible " addressing some of these issues. Thanks for you input; Dave Puskas, P.E.
