RE: 1997 UBC 2320.2 & 1605.2 - how to tell if your plan reviewer is really looking at the plans

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Try asking the plan reviewer if she will accept base isolation as an
alternative to R=2.2 for cantilevered columns.  Then on the next set of
plans you submit delete all the anchor bolts off the plans and details. If
the permit gets approved then you will know that the BO is not looking at
the plans.

If that doesn't work anonymously drop off a big plate of ex-lax brownies at
the Building Department.  BO's, as a general rule, have a real soft spot for
baked goods.

Does anyone know if any building department has been accepting the
Seismology
Committee's opinion on the use of cantilever steel columns?  In the Los
Angeles area, I have been asked to comply with the least value of R along
the
same axis per 1630.4.4. No exceptions.

Thanks
Andy
