Re: Questions regarding composite steel form-deck

The AISC publishes a Code of Standard Practise. I believe the Canadian version may be similar in that it spells out the responsibilities of the various parties and that may help you. Best of luck. I have had to fight with contractors whose attitude was that the engineer was to supply everything including shop drawings.

This is unfortunately one of those situations where the owner has the
contractor already on site, and whatever the contractor says, that's the
way it is as far as the owner's concerned.

In this case I am expecting the contractor to tell the owner that this is a change order, because he was expecting the engineer to provide all of this information. And the owner will just take that as gospel.
