First. the little things. .

Scope (Section 1.4 .1) MARKETING •“Other Structures” added PUBLICATIONS •Consistent with AISC 360 (the AISC REDESIGN Specification for Structural Steel Buildings) •Buildings and Bridges (same as always) •Also affects Section 1.

References (Section 1.2) •The usual editorial update MARKETING PUBLICATIONS REDESIGN .

Tolerances (Section 1.9) MARKETING •Section 1.9 added as invoking language PUBLICATIONS •Also addresses tolerances not explicitly REDESIGN covered in the Code •Tolerances remain in Sections 6 and 7 •Specifically that tolerances not covered are not to be assumed as zero .

1) MARKETING PUBLICATIONS •Considered structural if attached to the structural frame REDESIGN •Clarification on base plates and bearing plates •Not if they are loose items that do not attach to the structural steel frame .Structural Steel (Section 2.

Option 3 Delegated Connection Design Work .

Option 1 The complete connection design shall be shown in the structural design drawings MARKETING PUBLICATIONS REDESIGN .

Option 1 MARKETING PUBLICATIONS The SER designs the connections REDESIGN The complete connection design shall be shown in the structural design drawings .

Option 1 The intent of this approach is that complete design information necessary for detailing the connection is shown in the structural design drawings. The steel detailer will then be able to transfer this information to the shop and erection drawings MARKETING PUBLICATIONS REDESIGN .

Option 2 The connection shall be designated to be selected or completed by an experienced steel detailer MARKETING PUBLICATIONS REDESIGN .

Option 2 MARKETING PUBLICATIONS REDESIGN The SER provides the schematics and the The connection shall be designated to be selected or completed by an experienced steel detailer steel detailer completes the details .

Teamwork The SER is inviting the fabricator and the licensed professional engineer in responsible charge of the connection design to be a part of the SER’s design team. MARKETING PUBLICATIONS REDESIGN .
