Re: Questions regarding composite steel form-deck

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I agree with you from a design engineers viewpoint.

However, on the fabricating side, I see this all the time on small jobs.

Wait until you run into one of the guys that wants to field fabricate open-web steel joists in lieu of buying them from Vulcraft. There used to be several GC's down in the Houston area who would put up speculative strip shopping centers where all the structural steel was field fabricated on-site.

You may be right, but this is bizarre given that (a) it's a T&M job, and
(b) this guy's likely never done this sort of thing before.

However, there's nothing certain contractors will do that would surprise me anymore.

Bottom line: they didn't pay me to detail this stuff.

I bet he is trying to but the deck himself along with the closures and
needs details on these items so he doesn't have to get a deck detailer
involved. You probably will not get any submittals on this either.
