This has nothing to do with an SE trying to shirk our fiduciary responsibility. Maybe you should review the AISC Code of Standard Practice. As the SE I am under no fiduciary obligation other than to provide complete design drawings and specifications that are released for construction. AISC COSP 4.3 states, The fabricator shall neither use nor reproduce any part of the Design Drawings as part of the Shop or Erection Drawings without the written permission of the Designer. There are also a series of conditions on their use, including provisions for a service or licensing fee to be paid to the designer by the fabricator.
I have no problem with a detailer using our CAD file as a starting point to create an erection drawing, and we routinely provide this information without a fee. But don't just copy my drawing with no detailing review what-so-ever and return it to me as your detail drawings. Where is the detailers fiduciary responsibility being met in this? Where is the active review and development of detailed information? Who is shirking what responsibility?
The fabricator is not liable for the completeness of the design, but I do not see how you get to this point from the issue under discussion.
