Re: STANDARD PRACTICE

Actually, the requirement to submit calculations in Michigan will vary by
location, but most don't require calculations to be submitted.  I _DO_
know that calculations must be submitted to the city of Detroit for
permits or it at least it was required for the casino that I worked on.

I will also add that you will be VERY hard pressed to find anyplace in
Michigan that will require calculations to be submitted for the design of
a residence.  Heck, most houses in Michigan don't have to be sealed.  A
structure must be 3500 sf (if my memory is correct) or greater before it
must be sealed (by either an architect or PE).
