Re: Questions regarding composite steel form-deck

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I share your reaction to this request. We never get into all that
miscellaneous stuff, though I think something in our general notes covers
that the steel fabricator shall supply all necessary deck accessories. The
only time we would detail those conditions is if it was structural in
nature, like a cantilevered bent plate or angle at a deck edge.
