Steel column tolerances

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I am working on a three story steel building that has columns that are
broken at each floor level to allow for cantilevered beams to extend
"through" the columns.  The steel detailer asked me the question of whether
he should allow for shim plates between the column and cantilevered beam due
to the tolerance of +/- 1/8" on the beam depth.  That seemed reasonable to
me, but the erector claims that he can not be expected to shoot elevations
of the steel and install to a set elevation.  Can anyone point me towards a
reference that gives erection tolerences related to building framing
elevations?  Does the shim plate requirement seem out of the ordinary?
