RE: Shop Drawing Review

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Hi Bill,
This is not an uncommon event in my experience.
I will still review and comment as I always would.
The problem is trying to implement the comments or changes after-the-fact which is really not my (direct) concern.
I am still on the hook for making the structure work, and I provide commentary to the shop drawings as I need.  At the very least, it should help CYA in different ways if the field needs to correct anything.
Good Luck,
Dave Nuttall, P.E.

Subject: Shop Drawing Review

I have received shop drawings for an element (Glu-Lam Beams) which have already been installed.


The client is a good one. The contractor is a good one. The owner is a good one. I suspect this is an honest mistake; I don’t believe that anyone is trying to pull a fast one.


Should I:


  1. Review the shop drawings,
  2. Reject the shop drawings or
  3. _____________________
