It Fits!! [U6]

As the exclamation point in the presentation title indicates, ""It Fits"" is good news. A critical aspect of the design and construction of structural steel frames is the accommodation of follow on trades, including the structural steel frame as a follow on to the foundations and follow on trades to the frame such as the façade/curtain wall. The tolerances for the fabrication and erection listed in the AISC Code of Standard Practice are an essential element in this process, but other elements are also very important for success. These other elements are tolerance coordination among systems and adjustment at system interfaces. The presentation includes: Review of the AISC Code of Standard Practice and its general role in the design and construction process. Review of relevant provisions of the AISC Code of Standard Practice. Review of related documents published by AISC, e.g., the Steel Construction Manual, Design Guide 22 and Design Guide 33. Review of other notable codes and standards published by AAMA, ACI and PCI. Review of how adjustment provisions can be employed accommodate the work of follow on trades. Recommendations for specifications, e.g., Section 051200. Review an example of how the code was used to determine interface tolerances.
