RE: RE: POLL: Who "Designs" Your Structural Steel Connections?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
It typically starts with the fabricator submitting a request to the
General Contractor to revise details, usually under the guise of an
R.F.I.  From General Contractor to the Owner and then from the Owner to
the Engineer.  I then recommend that the Owner request a credit to the
contract through change order process.  Generally, the whole situation
dies right about this time.

A good point, but how exactly do you "ask for a cost credit"? Is that
written into your spec? A response to his shop-drawing submittal?
