You should also get the CASE National Practice Guidelines for The Structural Engineer of Record. This is 16 pages and will let you know what can be expected of you as SER and what you can expect to bill as Additional Services.

I will try again to get input
thanks in advance
structural observation to residential jobs
engineer go to the site see all element beams, posts, connections, shear walls , nailing , plywood
anchor bolts etc...........
but when it come to verify the location of beams under post above
how you make sure it line up , is not offset, is that the responsibility of the engineer
who observe the job, framer , contractor, or city's inspector and for CBC 2007 special inspection
I think it will be difficult for observation's engineer to verify
specially for large scale homes with 100 beams three story to do that
thanks in advance for your input and experience
my second question if there offset between beam and post above
and is hard to get anything added
what is acceptable for example 1 1/8 inch plywood
3/4 inch plywood
to span 16 inch over joists with point load = 3.0 kip to 5.0 kips?!
thanks for input
