Any claims or shortages by buyer must be made to ICON Building Systems within five (5) working days after delivery, or such claims shall be considered waived by the customer and disallowed.

Correction of Errors and Repairs (MBMA 6 .10)
Claims for correction of alleged misfits will be disallowed unless ICON Building Systems shall have received prior notice thereof and allowed reasonable inspection of such misfits. The correction of minor misfits by the use of drift pins to draw the components into line, moderate amounts of reaming, chipping and cutting, and the replacement of minor shortages of material are a normal part of erection and are not subject to claim. No part of the Building may be returned for alleged misfits without the prior approval of ICON BUILDING SYSTEMS.

Building Specifications
The Structure described in your contract has been designed and detailed for loads and conditions stipulated in the contract and shown on your respective drawings. Any alterations to the structural system or removal of any component parts, or the addition of other construction materials or Loads must be done under the advice of a Registered Architect, Civil or Structural Engineer. ICON Building Systems will assume no responsibility for any loads not indicated. Complete sets of Construction Drawings are furnished with every building. Each plan is specially prepared for each individual building and should be strictly adhered to. Familiarize yourself with these drawings prior to start-up.

Warning
In no case should Galvalume® steel panels be used in conjunction with lead or copper. Both lead and copper have harmful corrosive effects on the Galvalume® alloy coating when they are in contact with Galvalume® steel panels.

Assembly & Safety Manual Page 4

INTRODUCTION
ICON Building Systems produces high quality, pre-engineered metal buildings. For your new building to yield optimum integrity and durability, proper assembly is required. This manual provides detailed and general assembly instructions. The ICON Building Systems Erection Manual is intended to be an aid to your Pre-Engineered Drawings, which dictate specific building parts and construction details. ICON Building Systems assumes that only an experienced, knowledgeable erector with trained crews and proper equipment will perform the assembly. The manufacturer(s) is committed to producing quality-building components that can be safely assembled. It is a top priority to always utilize proven and safe procedures while employing accident prevention methods. The safety practices at the job site are beyond the control of the manufacturer(s). To help ensure worker safety, adhere to Local, State and Federal safety and health standards. Make certain all employees know the safest and most productive way of erecting a building. Take careful note of any overhead electric lines or other utilities to avoid hazards and damage. Post Emergency telephone numbers. Everyone present should know location of first aid stations and emergency procedures at the site. The manufacturer intends that this manual be interpreted and administered with sound judgment consistent with good safety practices. It is understood that the manufacturer(s) of the metal building and/or components is not engaged in the erection/assembly of its product(s). The provided erection suggestions are intended only as a guide as to how the components should be assembled. The expertise and skills of the erection crew(s) as well as the available equipment will determine the customer’s satisfaction and quality of the completed building. It is important to research and investigate any vendor or contractor for comparing price, quality, and time of completion as related to the assembly of your new building. The manufacturer(s) will answer any questions that may arise but will not physically be involved in the assembly process. Any agreement or representation between dealer or contractor and buyer concerning delivery, construction, modifications or other items are between the parties thereto. The manufacturer(s) is not liable for the quality of erection, erection safety procedures, poor foundation design, or assembly, site selection and preparation, including soil and drainage testing or the negligence of other parties. Due to variations in loading and zoning requirements, it is the customer’s responsibility to make certain that the building conforms to all codes. At an additional cost, ICON Building Systems can engineer and supply building components to meet special requirements. Moderate cutting and reaming or correcting minor misfits are considered part of the assembly process. Any fabrication errors preventing proper assembly or the fitting of parts by moderate use of reaming, chipping, or cutting should be reported to the manufacturer(s), so that he may either correct the error or approve the method of correction to be used. To ensure against any loss or damage, it is the customer’s responsibility to purchase and maintain liability insurance for complete assembly process and thereafter. To the best of our knowledge, this information is accurate. However, ICON Building Systems disclaims any responsibility for damages that may result from the use of this manual since the actual erection and assembly operations and conditions are beyond our control. Prior to construction, it is recommended that you read the erection manual and thoroughly study the “Pre-Engineered Drawings”. Understanding the assembly process allows the erector to properly plan the assembly and help to avoid unnecessary delays. It is the customer’s responsibility to be familiar with all laws and regulations that govern permitting, labor and employment, safety, materials handling and disposal, and any other issues which may apply. A copy of this manual may be obtained at a nominal cost.

BUILDING SITE ASSESSMENT
A.1. Ensure the transport company has sufficient permission and access to the building site. A.2. To perform the tasks required for building assembly, confirm the building site has adequate workspace. A.3. The availability of any required utilities should also be considered at this time.
