Re: Regional permitting differences - calculations

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Sealed calculations are required for almost all government entities in the
Kansas City, MO/KS area.  Also, the State of Missouri requires sealed
calculations on State jobs.

Peer reviews are called "Value Engineering" and are done only when the
client requests and pays for it, or if a small one-person engineering firm
wants some extra insurance.

>From the list I understand that calcs are submitted in addition to drawings
in California.  I know that Miami requires calcs from work I've done down
there.  The only place in the Southeast that I have run across this is a
county north of Atlanta.

Where else are calculations required as part of the permitting process?
How about peer review?  I have never run across this in the Southeast.
