Re: Elevator Shop Drawings

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I consider the elevator as a piece of equipment and will stamp the drawings with a "shop drawing review" type stamp that says I've reviewed the drawings for loads imposed on the building and the building was designed to withstand those loads. The only issues I've encountered with elevators are the rail loads and the foundation load. The rest of the elevator design is the manufacture's responsibility.

however where does the building start and the elevator end?
