Re: Steel-Detail: this just in......

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next] This would be in regard to miscellaneous steel elements as part of the Architectural, steel support elements that are part of the Mechanical, and so on.

It is not realistic to assume that the structural drawings will detail every piece of steel in a building, most of the miscellaneous stuff is not in our contract. We are responsible for the structural elements, you know, holding the building up and keeping it stable. I am not responsible for the fancy angle iron light sconce fixture or the suspended open lattice ceiling treatment, or even the decorative guardrails and railings. Typically we are not contracted to provide the piping and mechanical supports either, especially if they are in a yard or on grade as opposed to roof mounted.

Just because it is steel doesn't make it structural.

Typically the structural and miscellaneous are separate contracting contracts as well.

.......but I've got a job here with a note in the specs
that says "The structural drawings are not intended to represent all the
steel required on this project."  I guess they're actually intended to
show just a little bit of the steel required?.........
