RE: Rebar Shop Drawings - European Practices

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Thank-you for your reply.  What about structural steel shop drawings?  In Germany were they prepared by the structural engineer or the structural steel contractor?  It is good to know that you are in the area.  Please send me your contact information directly to my e-mail account.

I worked in Germany 10 years ago.  We used ISB-Cad to develop the shop drawings for all concrete reinforcing steel.  And at the end, a rebar bill of material was provided by the software.  That is one of the best program I used.  If you need help, please let me know.  I am in Kansas City area.

I was recently informed that the practice in Europe and Germany (in particular) is for the structural engineer to develop the shop drawings for concrete reinforcing steel. 
In most other places in which I have worked, the develpment of the concrete reinforcing steel shop drawings is performed by the concrete reinforcing steel supplier/contractor. 
I would appreciate any comments.
