DETAILING FOR ERECTOR'S


SAFETY and EFFICIENCY

PREAMBLE
The growing trends towards “Design-Build” and “Fast-Track” methods of construction
have made it more important than ever that the cooperation between members of the steel
industry become even more concentrated. The ever-increasing demands from insurance
and bonding interests as well as codifying bodies and government regulators only serve to
emphasize the need for unification. To that end the NISD and SEAA have partnered in the
production of this manual. The intent is to permit detailers and erectors together to better
provide structures that are safer, timely, and more erectable, and to promote the use of
structural steel as the material of choice. At the same time the impact of those demands on
all of us associated in the steel community must be minimized if we are to be successful in
reaching our goals. By working together we can satisfy our purpose of achieving
successful project completion that provides a quality product that is accident free, efficient,
productive and profitable for all involved.

Following are a number of suggested concepts, hints and illustrations for erection
procedures, which have been based on the OSHA 2001(29 CFR 1926.750 thru 761) new
steel erection standard and the combined experience of SEAA and NISD members. None
of the information presented in this guide is meant to supersede project-specific contracts,
codes, specifications, or government regulations. Readers are encouraged to refer to the
AISC Code of Standard Practice, the AISC Erector Certification Program, the NISD
Industry Standard publication and the AISC “New OSHA Rules Advisory” for additional
resources. Also, the NISD Guidelines For The Successful Presentation of Steel Design
Documents and the AISC publication Working With Structural Steel In Schedule Driven
Projects will provide valuable insight. In all cases the role and responsibility of the design
engineer of record is paramount to the proper utilization and approval of the actual use of
any information contained herein.

The information presented in this publication has been prepared for general information
only. While it is believed to be accurate, this information should not be used or relied upon
for any specific application without competent professional examination and verification of

THE TEAM
Successful steel project completion depends on the cooperative activities of many players.
The owner, the architect, the engineer, the controlling contractor, the fabricator, the detailer,
the independent suppliers, and the erector all play significant roles. This guideline will focus
mainly on the contributions of the detailer and the erector; often two of the last participants to
be brought onboard, yet two of the key players in the success of the project.

The detailer is often described as an interpreter. He is the “lead off man” on many projects
and is often the first to interface with the architect/engineer drawings. His responsibility is to
correctly interpret the design information and to relay that data, in the form of shop and field
drawings, to the approving agent, the fabricator, and the erector. The exacting nature of the
detailer’s work, which requires “zero-defect” production, must account for every piece of
steel on the job. He must utilize the design information to produce mill orders and to produce
error-free shop drawings. The detailer must provide the erector with not only member
placement drawings but also with the assurance that every piece of steel has been detailed, in
proper sequence, and that the steel is safely erectable with connections that match, clearances
considered, bolt placement possible and all special requirements recognized.

If the detailer is one of the first to begin the arduous task of providing successful steel
projects, the erector is the last. It is the erector who must make it all come together in the
field and the one who is the recipient of any errors or omissions which any of the preceding
players may have made. His job, no matter the weather or how challenging the conditions; is
to not only bring all the pieces of steel together but to do so with all due consideration to the
education and safety of the workers on the job.

To permit these players to better accomplish their tasks, communication becomes of utmost
importance. Not only must the erector and detailer communicate with each other but the
other players must also be involved. Owners should bring all of the players on board as soon
as possible and encourage “kick-off” meetings to permit the players to begin to form a team
so that communication flows freely and all hands are working towards the common goal.
Concepts, methods, and plans must be agreed on; not to mention scheduling. With all players
contributing to the best of their ability, from original contract documents to final bolt
placement, our project can be brought to the successful completion we all desire.

DETAILING FOR ERECTOR'S


SAFETY and EFFICIENCY

PRE – DRAFTING
Prior to the start of the detailing process, we suggest that (at a kick-off meeting, if possible) the
following checklist items be considered:

1) Sequence & schedule of erection: Grid lines, floors, derricking, size, tonnage.

2) Shipping requirements: Site layout, access and lay-down area, splice requirements, and
shipping methods.

3) Crane capacity weight and reach constraints and hazards.

4a) Types of Connection: (e.g. seated, shear-tab, moment, girts hung or seated, etc.)

4b) Bolting requirements: (e.g. types, installation “snug-tight”, “slip critical”, Direct Tension
Indicators (DTI), etc., clearance for torque guns or tools.

5) Safety requirements: prevailing codes, OSHA’s requirements, fall protection, perimeter


protection, safety aids, egress requirements, etc, etc.
5a) Joist Connections
5b) Fall Protection
5c) Column Splicing
5d) Beam to Column Connections
5e) Bracing

6) Field welding requirements: procedures preferences, joint preparation, and access.

7) Communication channels: between erector, fabricator, detailer, professionals, and inspector.

8) Pre-bid value engineering: best connections, shop assemblies, mechanical penetrations


reinforcing, tie joists.

9) Responsibilities; contractual, design, connection design, approvals, revisions, payments.

10) Joist/ Deck/ Floor & Roof openings

11) Erectability: bolt access, shop assemblies, clearances for torque guns, hands and tools,
leveling devices.

DETAILING FOR ERECTOR'S


SAFETY and EFFICIENCY

CHECKLIST
1) Sequence: Erector/Contractor must establish, prior to commencement of work,
the sequencing so that material may be ordered and members detailed in proper
order. Detailer must indicate on mill lists, shop drawings, and member placement
drawings (plans and elevations) the required sequence. Revisions to the chain of
sequence are expensive in terms of time and money.

2) Shipping: The erector may visit the site prior to bidding to establish what, if any,
special conditions exist which are not indicated on the contract documents,
however it is the controlling contractors responsibility to provide site access or
advise if it is not available. In the event conditions warrant special considerations
such as splicing, shipping methods, etc., the erector must advise the detailer and
fabricator in a timely manner. Suggested resolution, design and/or approval of the
special situation must be reviewed by the appropriate parties.

3) Cranes: The erector must notify the detailer and others if there are any special
requirements due to crane reach, availability, or capacity that will affect someone
else’s particular operation. Critical lifts of large members, or irregular shapes,
lifting lugs, and/or lifting locations should be defined and the detailer advised so
that this information may be given on the drawings if necessary. Provided the
erector's directives are received in a timely fashion, the detailer and fabricator
should consult with the erector and define a plan of how best to proceed. If the
center of gravity must be defined the design engineer should provide this
information. The erector may request that the detailer show lifting weights or
crane locations on the member placement drawings.

4) Types of Connections: If and when connection types are not dictated on the
design documents the fabricator, detailer, and erector must consult as to what type
of connection(s) will be utilized and whose responsibility is the adequacy of the
connection; are moment connections field bolted or welded? Are beam to column
webs seated and how much tolerance should be allowed to prohibit column
leaning in multiple bays: Will girt connections at columns be seated or hung?
How are spandrels and kickers treated?

SAFETY and EFFICIENCY

5) Bolting: The required type and number of bolts is the responsibility of the design
engineer. However, the detailer must insure that these bolts can not only be
entered, but that they can also be tightened. Care must be taken to avoid bolt to
bolt interference. Latest bolt specifications must be incorporated. The erector
must be made aware of the type of bolt being furnished, the number of washers
required and the method of tightening. The introduction of Tension Control Bolts
(TCB) and Load Indicator Washers (LIW) has helped the erector to know he has
achieved specification requirements. Bolting instructions and requirements must
be noted. Bolt placement lists must be accurate and precise.

A minimum of 2 bolts is required at each end of a main member, and


recommended at secondary members, for erection. Utilize permanent bolts at
beam webs for moment connections whenever possible. When connections to
shear tabs require that the bolt hole is located inside the flange, bolt entry and
driving clearance become a factor. Try to place bolt holes in a shear tab on the
outside of flanges whenever possible (engineer approval may be required if a
lever arm is created). If web stiffeners or seats become necessary the ability to
erect beams above or below may become a problem.

6) Safety requirements: The OSHA 2001 update requires the engineering


community to give certain information to the construction team and identify what
creates the lateral stability of a structure when complete; e.g. deck diaphragm
shear, concrete cores, masonry shear walls or steel bracing. The detailer and
erector should communicate to best solve the issues of temporary bracing and
aids. The goal obviously is to stabilize the structure during and after erection. As
temporary framing is often not within the detailer’s or fabricator’s scope of work,
the erector is responsible for temporary erection bracing, only during the erection
process, unless specified otherwise in the contract documents.

6a) Joist OSHA mandates that when columns are not framed in at least two (2)
directions with solid members (beams or joist girders) a vertical stabilizer plate
shall be provided on each column for an OSHA required bolted steel joist. This
plate must be a minimum of 6 inches by 6 inches and located 3 inches below the
bottom of the joist with one 13/16 inch diameter hole for guying or plumbing
cables.

DETAILING FOR ERECTOR'S


SAFETY and EFFICIENCY

6b) Fall Protection: The most common, if not most important, issue is that of
fall protection. Multistory structures require guardrail cable at the floor perimeter
and at large interior floor and roof openings. While the erector has been providing
these devices for years it is required by OSHA 2001 that this be incorporated into
the shop details. The method to accomplish this protection should be agreed upon
prior to commencement of detailing. The erector may desire that shear studs or
other items be shop attached rather than field applied. In these cases adequate fall
protection must be provided and detailer/fabricator notified prior to detailing.

6c) Column Splices: The column length should be designed on the contract
documents. In cases where they are not, for structures of one or two stories (with
or without a basement), a column length in excess of 40 feet is quite long. While
the erector might prefer long columns, and would find a way stabilize them with
bracing or framing, it may be necessary for safety or shipping purposes to splice
the columns. The detailer should consult with the erector to determine if, and
where, a splice may be required. The designer and fabricator should also be
contacted to give approval and design of the requested splice.

When splicing columns on multistory projects, OSHA has mandated that columns
be spliced 4 feet above the finished floor elevation. This permits the required
perimeter cable to be installed at the necessary heights. Bolted splices are
preferred, but when welded splices are used the 4 feet allows the erector/welder to
work in a safe, comfortable position. When welded splices are utilized always
prepare the upper column for welding. Tiered columns should always have a
lifting device or a hole at the top of the shaft for attaching the hoisting mechanism
or cable.

6d) Column Bases: OSHA 2001 requires that all columns now have a minimum
of 4 anchor bolts. The detailer should reference to the contract documents to
determine how much, if any, over-sizing of anchor rod holes should be provided.
The use of leveling devices and what type should also be discussed with the
erector.

6e) Beam to Column Connections: per OSHA 2001 directives, all double
connections at column webs or beam webs over columns must have staggered clip
angles or a beam seat or a top flange clip angle. Where not possible to provide
these safety connections, the detailer is required by OSHA to add a note of

02/09 V
SEAA

Serving Erectors Serving Detailers


Since 1972 since 1969

DETAILING FOR ERECTOR'S


SAFETY and EFFICIENCY

warning to the erector on the member placement drawings. Deck supports may be
required at deck cutouts near beam to beam or beam to column connections.
Consult with the erector, fabricator, detailer, and clients to preferred method.

6f) Bracing: A minimum of one bolt at each end of a solid web bracing member
shall be used, as directed by OSHA 2001. Holes for erection bolts are required at
welded tube bracing. Provide a 1/8 inch oversized slot for erection clearance over
gusset and resize the welds accordingly. Check for bolt insertion clearance at
gusset plates, end plates, etc. Keep gusset plates to a minimum size by utilizing
the uniform force method unless otherwise directed by the contract documents.

7) Field Welding: The erector must advise the detailer prior to shop drawing
preparation what type of field welds are desired so that end preparations, root
openings etc. may be properly detailed. It is the responsibility of the contract
documents, not the erector, to advise the detailer of what and where any NDT is
required so that the detailer can identify those areas on the member placement
diagrams if requested. Special requirements for seismic considerations should be
reviewed.

8) Communication: Contacts and communication are paramount to a successful


project. It is only through the spirit of cooperative communication that success
can be achieved and we encourage all parties to appoint a liaison with decision
making authority to maintain contact with the other members of the
construction/owner team. It should also be remembered by detailer and erector
alike that their client should always be contacted whenever work is requested that
may affect their client’s scope.

9) Value Engineering: Erectors, detailers, fabricators and others may desire certain
changes be made to the contract documents in order to expedite their portion of
the work or to make the design more suitable to their particular operation. There
may also be instances where an experienced firm may discover certain changes
where, if incorporated, can be beneficial to the firm, the project’s owner, or both.
Certain changes may also make the bids more competitive or improve the safety
conditions for a supplier. In any event, these changes should naturally be
requested as early as possible, prior to bid time if permitted.

02/09 V
SEAA

Serving Erectors Serving Detailers


Since 1972 since 1969

DETAILING FOR ERECTOR'S


SAFETY and EFFICIENCY

Requests for certain type splices, connections, shop assemblies, erection


procedures, etc., which were not considered in the contract documents should be
presented prior to bid time if possible. Concerns about the availability of
information to permit detailing-fabrication-erection to proceed in a timely
manner should be communicated at this time; in particular concerns about
mechanical openings, spandrels, field measurements, drainage, pour stop
attachment, brick relief systems or other supplier required data should be
addressed promptly.

10) Responsibility: To ensure that all members of the team are treated fairly it must
be remembered that any required or requested changes which differ from
information given in the design documents may have an impact financially on
other members of the team. It should also be remembered that these changes may
result in additional engineering calculations or approvals and possible schedule
adjustments. We highly recommend that the proponent of the change
communicate with the other players to insure that no one is unfairly jeopardized.

11) Erectability: Last, but not least on our checklist of items to be considered, is the
erectability of the member. Can the bolts be entered and driven? Should certain
pieces be shop assembled? Can the member be swung into place or do stiffeners,
cap plates, connection angles, doubler plates or other items interfere? Are special
notes required? Will the mechanical openings be available prior to installation of
deck and siding? The ever growing use by the detailer of reproductions of the
design documents as member placement plans require certain cautions by the
detailer: is the required erection information fully shown? Is the drawing legible
in the field or is it cluttered with superfluous information? (shop information,
concrete data, sections and views taken without cross reference to where/from
each section or view is cut, or references to drawings not included in the member
placement drawing being used by the erector).
