APPENDIX PAGE 110 Commentary: The fabrication and erection of Structural Steel is a dynamic process. Typically, material is being acquired at the same time that the Shop and Erection Drawings are being prepared. Additionally, the fabrication shop will normally fabricate pieces in the order that the Structural Steel is being shipped and erected. Items that are revised or placed on hold generally upset these relationships and can be very disruptive to the detailing, fab- ricating and erecting processes. The provisions in Sections 3.5, 4.4.2 and 9.3 are intended to minimize these disruptions so as to allow work to continue. Accordingly, it is required in this Code that the reviewer of requests for contract price adjustments recognize this and allow compensation to the Fabricator and the Erector for these inefficiencies and for the materials that are purchased and the detailing, fabrication and erection that has been performed, when affected by the change. 9.4.2. Requests for contract price adjustments shall be presented by the Fabricator and/or the Erector in a timely manner and shall be accompanied by a description of the change that is sufficient to per- mit evaluation and timely approval by the Owner. 9.4.3. Price-per-pound and price-per-item contracts shall provide for additions or deletions to the quantity of work that are made prior to the time the work is Released for Construction. When changes are made to the character of the work at any time, or when additions and/or deletions are made to the quantity of the work after it is released for detailing, fabrication or erection, the contract price shall be equitably adjusted. 9.5. Scheduling 9.5.1. The contract schedule shall state when the Design Drawings will be Released for Construction, if the Design Drawings are not available at the time of bidding, and when the job site, foundations, piers and abutments will be ready, free from obstructions and accessible to the Erector, so that erection can start at the designated time and continue without interference or delay caused by the Owner’s Designated Representative for Construction or other trades.

    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.
