Subject: Bolted beam splice connection

Good morning everyone,
 
I have a question for you.  Steel fabricator has fabricated a beam that is 1" to short at the cantilevered end of a splice.  So, instead of 1/2" gap under the splice plate, they've got 1 1/2".  It doesn't seem to big of a problem, i just wanted to make sure i'm going about this correctly.
 
I'm going to check the increase of the eccentricity on the bolts and thier shear capacity.  I can specify a bigger plate and add bolts if i need be.  Anything else i should be concerned about? or should i have them make a new beam :)
 
TIA
 
Alden Manipula, EIT
