A full pen weld is fairly common and shouldn't be a concern.  I normally ask for testing (either UT or mag particle) for the weld.
 
Of concern might be the deflection anticipated for a 52' steel beam and the camber that is inherit in the beam.  A 1/8" per foot slope is small and the camber and live load deflection might make that drainage slope insignificant.
 
You might consider tapered insulation to develop your slope and field verify actual elevations and slope to drains.
 
Good luck,
Paul.

To All,
 
I am working on a project where I need to span the floor beams 52 feet and at about half way thru the span the beam changes from being horzontally level to sloping at 1/8 or 1/4 inch per foot, (going from an interior space to an exterior deck). I assume a full pen weld at this transition will work, but are there concerns I am overlooking?
 
Thanks in Advance,
 
Larry Hauer, S.E.
