Let me tell you that your are missing the point. This is not a
matter of developed or developing country engineering. Today
the whole engineering world is much more different from that of
some years ago. By the way, we are usually handling projects
involving Canada, US and yes, also Chile. But the point is, whenever
or whatever you can advance in your specs and drawings for site
activities the better would be IMHO. I read someone with concerns
regarding previously set anchor bolts, because < plans change quickly>
and < they are always in the way>. This doesn't speak very well of the
engineering phase. The one to be thorougly performed before site
activities. Besides that, you do not require to have the anchors < always
in the way>. You can let pockets, where they are to be placed and grouted
later. Tapered pockets for seismic areas. We have seen this in .....
Now, today it's sunday, so let's set these sort of issues for the coming
right now a pisco-sour is awaiting for me.
