Re: Structural Design submission and checking

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Thank you very much for your response. The information you provided is very useful to me.
I understand that each agency should prepare and include its specific set of requirements in the respective RFP, which requirements, in each case, depend on the special characteristics of the project.
Although such requirements may be similar in many cases, it does not mean that there is a set of requirements applicable in every case.
I think this procedure is quite adapable and helps to check and decide what is actually needed in each project.

Most of the agencies I've dealt with include in their requests for proposal the information and documents that must accompany design submittals, often including format.
If that is not the case, as for you project, I would include in my fee time to develop a complete set of design criteria and a complete listing of submittal documentation that you would propose to the client.  Meetings or other means of coordination with the client might then be needed to reach agreement on the submittal package.  Time for the required coordination meetings could be included in your project fees.  This kind of procedure will help to avoid later complications because of differing expectations.
