RE: shear wall elevations

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

We normally do not require, nor see it on the plans. However, there are cases when it would be beneficial, especially when there are proprietary walls or frames involved. Many times they have to alter the standard details for these elements and it helps to provide an elevation in those cases.

Does anybody or rather are there many out there that provide shear wall elevations for Type V construction? Most in this area do not (NE. California/ W. Nevada); however one local bldg. dept requires holdowns to be shown on the Arch. elevations though.


Just curious
