9.5.3. If the fabrication or erection is significantly delayed due to revi- sions to the requirements of the contract, or for other reasons that are the responsibility of others, the Fabricator and/or Erector shall be compensated for the additional costs incurred. 9.6. Terms of Payment The Fabricator shall be paid for Mill Materials and fabricated prod- uct that is stored off the job site. Other terms of payment for the contract shall be outlined in the Contract Documents. Commentary: These terms include such items as progress payments for material, fabrication, erection, retainage, performance and payment bonds and final payment. If a performance or payment bond, paid for by the Owner, is required by contract, no retainage shall be required.

APPENDIX PAGE 112 SECTION 10. ARCHITECTURALLY EXPOSED STRUCTURAL STEEL 10.1. General Requirements When members are specifically designated as “Architecturally Exposed Structural Steel” or “AESS” in the Contract Documents, the requirements in Sections 1 through 9 shall apply as modified in Section 10. AESS members or components shall be fabricated and erected with the care and dimensional tolerances that are stipulated in Sections 10.2 through 10.4. The following additional informa- tion shall be provided in the Contract Documents when AESS is specified: (a) Specific identification of members or components that are AESS; (b) Fabrication and/or erection tolerances that are to be more restrictive than provided for in this Section, if any; and, (c) Requirements, if any, of a mock-up panel or components for inspection and acceptance standards prior to the start of fabri- cation. Commentary: This Section of this Code defines additional requirements that apply only to members that are specifically designated by the Contract Documents as “Architecturally Exposed Structural Steel” (AESS). The rapidly increasing use of exposed Structural Steel as a medium of architectural expression has given rise to a demand for closer dimensional tolerances and smoother finished surfaces than required for ordinary Structural Steel framing. This Section of this Code establishes standards for these requirements that take into account both the desired finished appearance and the abilities of the fabrication shop to produce the desired product. It should be pointed out that the term “Architecturally Exposed Structural Steel” (AESS), as covered in this Section, must be specified in the Contract Documents if the Fabricator is required to meet the fabricating standards in this Section, and applies only to that portion of the Structural Steel so identified.

    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.
