unstressed facade supported at each floor level being higher than the Structural Steel framing to which it must be attached. Observations in the field have shown that where a heavy facade is erected to a greater height on one side of a multistory building than on the other, the Structural Steel framing will be pulled out of alignment. Facades should be erected at a relatively uniform rate around the perimeter of the structure. 7.13.3. Prior to placing or applying any other materials, the Owner’s Designated Representative for Construction shall determine that the location of the Structural Steel is acceptable for plumbness, ele- vation and alignment. The Erector shall be given either timely notice of acceptance by the Owner’s Designated Representative for Construction, or a listing of specific items that are to be corrected in order to obtain acceptance. Such notice shall be rendered promptly upon completion of any part of the work and prior to the start of work by other trades that may be supported, attached or applied to the Structural Steel frame.

PAGE 101 APPENDIX 7.14. Correction of Errors The correction of minor misfits by moderate amounts of reaming, grinding, welding or cutting, and the drawing of elements into line with drift pins, shall be considered to be normal erection opera- tions. Errors that cannot be corrected using the foregoing means, or that require major changes in member or Connection configuration, shall be promptly reported to the Owner’s Designated Representatives for Design and Construction and the Fabricator by the Erector, to enable the responsible entity to either correct the error or approve the most efficient and economical method of cor- rection to be used by others. Commentary: As used in this Section, the term “moderate” refers to the amount of reaming, grinding, welding or cutting that must be done on the project as a whole, not the amount that is required at an individual location. It is not intended to address limitations on the amount of material that is removed by reaming at an individual bolt hole, for example, which is limited by the bolt-hole size and tolerance requirements in the AISC and RCSC Specifications. 7.15. Cuts, Alterations and Holes for Other Trades Neither the Fabricator nor the Erector shall cut, drill or otherwise alter their work, nor the work of other trades, to accommodate other trades, unless such work is clearly specified in the Contract Documents. When such work is so specified, the Owner’s Designated Representatives for Design and Construction shall fur- nish complete information as to materials, size, location and num- ber of alterations in a timely manner so as not to delay the prepara- tion of Shop and Erection Drawings.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
