RE: Architectural Low Rise Projects (Lateral Stability)

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next] As a general observation, some of the architects who believe they know more about engineering than the engineers do can be some of the worst to work with. The best ones to work with are the ones that have a good idea what's going on but realize their limitations. Anyways, I hear lots of great questions asked on this list. Many highly specialized individuals have little knowledge of design outside of their specialty (steel, concrete, wood, etc.) and ask elementary questions, but I wouldn't go questioning the grounds on which they call themselves engineers.

Thank you Frank.  I agree with you.  I am impressed by many of the
participants on this list; but there are many that ask questions or make
statements that make me wonder how they ever got the right to identify
themselves as engineers.
