Re: "Pre-Engineered" Metal Buildings

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Please don't "stamp" drawings that you did not produce.  The engineer that
designed the building should stamp the building design package.

If you are the "engineer of record" (EOR), then you should apply your stamp
to the foundation system, etcetera, but not the building structure.

When you seal or stamp this type of building, do you have to check or review
the struc. analysis?  I'm sure there will be nothing will go wrong after the
construction.  What if ??

By "pre-engineered" is mean there are standard, manufactured components that
have been designed for the various design  parameters. Each building is
indeed "engineered", but it is the case of running their proprietary
programs to select pre-specified components, putting the package together
and shipping it out.

Every one should have a seal by an engineer licensed in the state where the
building will be erected. No doubt about it.
