RE: Alternate Cold Joint Location

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

Has the contractor offered to share his cost savings with the owner?  This should help defray your costs in evaluating his proposal.

Subject: Alternate Cold Joint Location

 

Dear colleagues,

 

A contractor has requested an alternate cold joint location. In the sketch found in the link below:

 

http://www.allendesigns.com/projects/20603/20603AlternateColdJoint.gif

 

Alternate A is the method shown on the approved plans.

 

Alternate B is what the contractor wants to do.

 

The dowels match the slab bars.

 

Should I have a concern about the request?

 

Regards,

 

T. William (Bill) Allen, S.E.
