Drawings and Specifications that have been Released for Construction. Unless otherwise noted, Design Drawings that are provided as part of a contract bid package shall constitute authori- zation by the Owner that the Design Drawings are Released for Construction Commentary: When the Owner issues Released-for-Construction Design Drawings and Specifications, the Fabricator and the Erector rely on the fact that these are the Owner’s requirements for the project. This release is required by the Fabricator prior to the ordering of material and the preparation and completion of Shop and Erection Drawings. To ensure the orderly flow of material procurement, detail- ing, fabrication and erection activities, on phased construction projects, it is essential that designs are not continuously revised after they have been Released for Construction. In essence, once a portion of a design is Released for Construction, the essential ele- ments of that design should be “frozen” to ensure adherence to the contract price and construction schedule. Alternatively, all parties should reach a common understanding of the effects of future changes, if any, as they affect scheduled deliveries and added costs. 4.2. Fabricator Responsibility Except as provided in Section 4.5, the Fabricator shall produce Shop and Erection Drawings for the fabrication and erection of the Structural Steel and is responsible for the following: (a) The transfer of information from the Contract Documents into accurate and complete Shop and Erection Drawings; and, (b) The development of accurate, detailed dimensional information to provide for the fit-up of parts in the field.

PAGE 59 APPENDIX When the Fabricator submits a request to change Connection details that are described in the Contract Documents, the Fabricator shall notify the Owner’s Designated Representatives for Design and Construction in writing in advance of the submis- sion of the Shop and Erection Drawings. The Owner’s Designated Representative for Design shall review and approve or reject the request in a timely manner. When requested to do so by the Owner’s Designated Representative for Design, the Fabricator shall advise the Owner’s Designated Representatives for Design and Construction of its schedule for the submittal of Shop and Erection Drawings so as to facilitate the timely flow of information between all parties. Commentary: As the Fabricator develops the detailed dimensional information for production of the Shop and Erection Drawings, there may be discrepancies, missing information or conflicts discovered in the Contract Documents. See Section 3.3. When the Fabricator intends to make a submission of alter- native Connection details to those shown in the Contract Documents, the Fabricator must notify the Owner’s Designated Representatives for Design and Construction in advance. This will allow the parties involved to plan for the increased effort that may be required to review the alternative Connection details. In addi-

    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.
