RE: Alternate Cold Joint Location

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



FWIW, the building officials at the I-Code hearings currently in progress just approved a detail for the next IRC (2007 supplement coming out in July) that looks similar to Alternate A.  Actually what they approved was a vertical bar with standard hook T&B wrapped around the top and bottom continuous bars, rather than the 90-degree bar, but it’s the same concept.

Subject: Alternate Cold Joint Location


Dear colleagues,


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


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?
