PAGE 49 APPENDIX SECTION 3. DESIGN DRAWINGS AND SPECIFICATIONS 3.1. Structural Design Drawings and Specifications Unless otherwise indicated in the Contract Documents, the struc- tural Design Drawings shall be based upon consideration of the design loads and forces to be resisted by the Structural Steel frame in the completed project. The structural Design Drawings shall clearly show the work that is to be performed and shall give the following information with suf- ficient dimensions to accurately convey the quantity and nature of the Structural Steel to be fabricated: (a) The size, section, material grade and location of all mem- bers; (b) All geometry and working points necessary for layout; (c) Floor elevations; (d) Column centers and offsets; (e) The camber requirements for members; and, (f) The information that is required in Sections 3.1.1 through 3.1.6. The Structural Steel Specification shall include any special requirements for the fabrication and erection of the Structural Steel. The structural Design Drawings, Specifications and addenda shall be numbered and dated for the purposes of identification. Commentary: Contract Documents vary greatly in complexity and completeness. Nonetheless, the Fabricator and the Erector must be able to rely upon the accuracy and completeness of the Contract Documents. This allows the Fabricator and the Erector to provide the Owner with bids that are adequate and complete. It also enables the prepa- ration of the Shop and Erection Drawings, the ordering of materi- als and the timely fabrication and erection of shipping pieces. In some cases, the Owner can benefit when reasonable lati- tude is allowed in the Contract Documents for alternatives that can reduce cost without compromising quality. However, critical requirements that are necessary to protect the Owner’s interest, that Code of Standard Practice for Steel Buildings and Bridges , March 7, 2000 AMERICAN INSTITUTE OF STEEL CONSTRUCTION 11

    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.
