double angle conn

Title: double angle conn

In a double angle connection of a floor beam to a supporting floor girder, are there any issues with one of the angles being field bolted, while the other is field welded?  The erector had to modify some connections (approved by fabricator) in this fashion.  Is it safe to design each angle to receive half of the beam reaction?
