Steel connections are a common deferred submittal (delegated design) item in commercial construction projects. When deferred, the contractor must hire a structural engineer to produce calculations and/or shop drawings for the connections showing that they can support the indicated loading. Dudley Engineering is well versed with steel connections and producing calculation packages. When engaging Dudley Engineering to perform calculations is also a great time to utilize our structural peer review services to produce RFI’s for missing, conflicting or value engineering items, visit our page to learn more:
