Chapter 6 Structural Steel
CHAPTER 6 STRUCTURAL STEEL
SICC-601.1 Scope. The requirements of this chapter and NCSBC-1704.3 shall apply when construction includes structural hot-rolled steel building elements as listed in SICC-302.2. Where required, structural hot-rolled steel building elements shall also comply with NCSBC-1705, NCSBC-1707 and NCSBC -1708. See SICC-2007 Chapter 14 for sprayed fire-resistant materials.
SICC-601.2 Steel fabrication. Structural steel fabricators shall be subject to special inspections as required by SICC-302.1 and SICC-603 and NCSBC -1704.2.
SICC-601.3 Steel erection. Structural steel elements shall be subject to special inspections as required by SICC-604. Construction shall conform to the AISC Code of Standard Practice.
SICC-602 FABRICATION AND ERECTION DOCUMENTS
SICC-602.1 Review and approval. The structural steel fabrication and erection documents shall be submitted for review and approval to the SER prior to fabrication and erection of steel elements. The GC shall provide SER-approved fabrication and erection documents for use by the SIER to conduct special inspections during construction.
SICC-602.2 Preparation of fabrication and erection documents. The structural steel fabrication and erection documents shall include designs and details for welded and bolted connections. Details for welded connections shall clearly indicate the seismic-force-resisting elements of buildings of Seismic Category C,D,E or F. Details for bolted connections shall clearly indicate the type of connection used in the design (bearing or slip-critical), the amount of tensioning required (snug tight or fully tensioned) and the ASTM specifications for the bolts, nuts and washers
SICC-602.3 SER review and approval. The structural steel fabrication and erection documents shall be reviewed and approved by the SER. Each fabrication and erection document shall bear the review and approval stamp of the SER and be properly signed and dated.
a. Secondary structural elements. Secondary structural elements are required to be reviewed and approved by the SER only for their effects on the primary structural system.
SICC-603 INSPECTION OF STEEL FABRICATORS
SICC-603.1 Steel fabricators. The SIER shall provide special inspection of the steel fabricator and fabrication procedures, and of the fabricated items, as required by IBC-1704.2 (see SICC-302.1).
SICC-603.2 Fabrication procedures.
a. Certification. The fabricator may demonstrate to the SIER that the requirements of IBC-1704.2 have been met by furnishing evidence of compliance with the AISC Quality Certification Program in the appropriate category.
b. Procedures implementation. The SIER shall verify in writing to CCBSD that the fabricator is
