Re: Architect cheating on structural calculations - where's the building depa...

Hey, you bastards don't call names.  That's my opinion and I didn't  call you 
names.  Actually I'm just talking about plan checkers that  does not even 
know how to plan check or does not even do the plan  checking.  You only spend a 
couple of hours to plan check a medium  size residence by comparing the 
results on the calculations with that of the  framing plans. Most of the plan 
checkers are doing their job very  well but what piss me off  are those that will 
not spend time to  review the drawings and the calcs and then approved the 
drawings like there  are no errors at all.  I know that I should get most of the 
responsibility  plan but checkers should also their part as well.  If, as I  
said before, the plan checkers don't have a degree of responsibility then  they 
will just approve the drawings without plan checking it. Checking the most  
critical portion of the project or just minor things so that there is a  chance 
for the drawings to comeback is good enough for me  .  There are times that you 
need to submit about 90% of the  drawings done because of time constraint and 
almost everybody is doing  that.  There are engineers that are worse by 
submitting half done. So what  I need is just a some plan checking on the part of 
plan checker. Is that  asking too much?

Normally mistakes  are done in the drafting side 
And you think  someone else should be responsible for this?! Shame on  you! 

Very well said, Dave!
