PAGE 107 APPENDIX SECTION 9. CONTRACTS 9.1. Types of Contracts 9.1.1. For contracts that stipulate a lump sum price, the work that is required to be performed by the Fabricator and the Erector shall be completely defined in the Contract Documents. 9.1.2. For contracts that stipulate a price per pound, the scope of work that is required to be performed by the Fabricator and the Erector, the type of materials, the character of fabrication and the conditions of erection shall be based upon the Contract Documents, which shall be representative of the work to be performed. 9.1.3. For contracts that stipulate a price per item, the work that is required to be performed by the Fabricator and the Erector shall be based upon the quantity and the character of the items that are described in the Contract Documents. 9.1.4. For contracts that stipulate unit prices for various categories of Structural Steel, the scope of work that is required to be performed by the Fabricator and the Erector shall be based upon the quantity, character and complexity of the items in each category as described in the Contract Documents, and shall also be representative of the work to be performed in each category. 9.2. Calculation of Weights Unless otherwise specified in the contract, for contracts stipulating a price per pound for fabricated Structural Steel that is delivered and/or erected, the quantities of materials for payment shall be determined by the calculation of the gross weight of materials as shown in the Shop Drawings. Commentary: The standard procedure for calculation of weights that is described in this Code meets the need for a universally acceptable system for defining “pay weights” in contracts based upon the weight of deliv- ered and/or erected materials. These procedures permits the Owner Code of Standard Practice for Steel Buildings and Bridges , March 7, 2000 AMERICAN INSTITUTE OF STEEL CONSTRUCTION 69

APPENDIX PAGE 108 to easily and accurately evaluate price-per-pound proposals from potential suppliers and enables all parties to a contract to have a clear and common understanding of the basis for payment. The procedure in this Code affords a simple, readily under- stood method of calculation that will produce pay weights that are consistent throughout the industry and that may be easily verified by the Owner. While this procedure does not produce actual weights, it can be used by purchasers and suppliers to define a widely accepted basis for bidding and contracting for Structural Steel. However, any other system can be used as the basis for a con- tractual agreement. When other systems are used, both the supplier and the purchaser should clearly understand how the alternative procedure is handled.

    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.
