Re: steel fabricator

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
If that spec was there during bidding, I don't think it is fair to remove it
after the job has finished bidding.  This assumes the job was competitively
bid.

There may have been shops that didn't bid because of that spec.  Also,
maybe, GC's or CM's may have only taken bids from AISC certified shops and
that's why they didn't get the job.

In this business, you get what you pay for.
