RE: Great Structural Note regarding Structural Steel Detailing

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Mr. Polhemus,

Perhaps your state requires that the PE actually be in responsible charge of
the work?  Our actually requires a CA.  Isn't detailing where the
connections are calculated by the detailer engineering?

Or maybe someone just got tired of trying to communicate with the other side
of the world regarding changes to the details when reviewing shop drawings?

What is the reasoning behind this requirement?

Aside from simplistic political statement, I mean.
