PAGE 79 APPENDIX SECTION 7. ERECTION 7.1. Method of Erection Fabricated Structural Steel shall be erected using methods and a sequence that will permit efficient and economical performance of erection, and that is consistent with the requirements in the Contract Documents. If the Owner or Owner’s Designated Representative for Construction wishes to prescribe or control the method and/or sequence of erection, or specifies that certain mem- bers cannot be erected in their normal sequence, that entity shall specify the required method and sequence in the Contract Documents. If the Owner’s Designated Representative for Construction contracts separately for fabrication services and for erection services, the Owner’s Designated Representative for Construction shall coordinate planning between contractors. Commentary: Design modifications are sometimes requested by the Erector to allow or facilitate the erection of the Structural Steel frame. When this is the case, the Erector should notify the Fabricator prior to the preparation of Shop and Erection Drawings so that the Fabricator may refer the Erector’s request to the Owner’s Designated Representatives for Design and Construction for resolution. 7.2. Job-Site Conditions The Owner’s Designated Representative for Construction shall pro- vide and maintain the following for the Fabricator and the Erector: (a) Adequate access roads into and through the job site for the safe delivery and movement of the material to be erected and of der- ricks, cranes, trucks and other necessary equipment under their own power; (b) A firm, properly graded, drained, convenient and adequate space at the job site for the operation of the Erector’s equip- ment, free from overhead obstructions, such as power lines, telephone lines or similar conditions; and, (c) Adequate storage space, when the structure does not occupy the full available job site, to enable the Fabricator and the Erector to operate at maximum practical speed.

    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.
