RE: More on level of Detailing

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Most of the architects copy almost the whole UBC on their plans!

And I can not imagine builidng officials going after engineers who are
helping them enforce their own building codes! Do not know about IBC,
however. But I know a similar schedule can be found in as old as 1955
UBC, which says the code is for public safety, etc.....

This practice almost certainly violates the copyright.  Note the
paragraph on inside cover of the building code.

I taught a seminar a few years ago and wanted to use excerpts out of
the IBC/IRC.  The conference organizer requested permission, and was
granted fairly limited permission to copy/distribute pertinent

I've seen this done and always wondered about the copyright issues
involved.  Does anyone have a handle on them?

There is no guarantee that a contractor will read the gen'l notes.  We
had notes to refer the GC to the Nailing Schedule in the UBC.  After a
few site visits to different jobs, no contractor had a copy of the UBC,
let alone where to look for such a nailing schedule.  We basically
reprinted the table onto our drawings after that.
