Design Submission Requirements
(NOTE: SEE THE CHAPTERS TITLED "PREPARATION OF DRAWINGS",
PREPARATION OF SPECIFICATIONS" AND "PREPARATION OF DESIGN ANALYSIS"
FOR GENERAL CONTENT REQUIREMENTS REGARDING PREPARATION OF THE
DOCUMENTS LISTED BELOW)
Submit the following Basis of Design:
A discussion in report form of how the A/E's concept satisfies the
user requirements, meets criteria and is cost effective. Include the
a) A summary of the criteria upon which the structural design
will be based.
b) General description of the proposed foundation and
structural system including their advantages and suitability for the
proposed project. Avoid using:
Cold formed steel members for primary structural steel
2) Metal stud backup for masonry veneered walls unless
stud backup is properly sized to limit deflection in the veneer.
Design stud backup veneered walls as two component systems, applying
a portion of the load to each component consistent with its relative
Pre-engineered frames with non-standard framing
c) Logical alternative foundation and structural systems
considered, listing the advantages and disadvantages of each, and
reasons for selection of the proposed design. Include preliminary
computations and cost comparisons (initial and life cycle) of various
structural framing systems, including alternate framing schemes for
"typical bays" and horizontal force resisting systems, as well as
consideration of unusual geometry and heavy equipment loads. Include
consideration of elements listed under the paragraph titled
"Selection of Structural Systems".
