Re: designating masonry shear walls on construction drawings

Christopher:
Expect your calc's and plans to be reviewed by somebody knows how to read and interpret them. That is what plan check is about..another set of eyes and their understanding of the requirements.  As far as designating if a masonry wall is a shear wall or just for looks would be handled in the wall reinforcement and details as needed.  Wood walls should be so designated and detailed. Here in California all projects will have calc's and plans submitted and reviewed.  And almost always there are comments and questions that need to be answered.
