Details for welded or bolted connections shall clearly indicate the seismic-resisting elements of buildings of Seismic Design Category C, D, E or F. Details for bolted connections shall clearly indicate the amount of tensioning required and the ASTM specifications for the nuts, bolts and washers.
SICC-1002.2 Review and approval. The wood prefabricated elements’ fabrication and erection documents shall be submitted to the AR, SER for review and approval prior to wood prefabricated elements' fabrication and/or erection, as appropriate. The GC shall provide SER-approved fabrication and erection documents for use by the SIER to conduct special inspections during construction.
SICC-1002.2.1 AR and SER review and approval. The AR and the SER shall review the fabrication and erection documents for compliance with the architectural and structural design of the building and the County approved construction documents. For prefabricated wood trusses, the AR/SER shall also submit a certification of compliance to the CCBSD.
a. Structural glue-laminated members and sandwich panels. The GC shall provide AR/SER- approved fabrication and erection documents for use by the SIER to conduct special inspections during construction.
b. Prefabricated trusses. The GC shall provide AR/SER-approved fabrication and erection documents for use by the SIER to conduct special inspections of the trusses. This set shall bear the original seal and signature of the RDP responsible for truss design.
c. Prefabricated wood I-joists. The GC shall provide AR/SER-approved fabrication and erection documents for use by the SIER to conduct special inspections during construction.
SICC-1003 INSPECTION OF WOOD FABRICATORS
SICC-1003.1 Wood fabricators. The SIER shall provide special inspection of the wood fabricator and fabrication procedures, and of the fabricated items, as required by NCSBC-1704.2. Glue-laminated members and sandwich panels shall bear the mark of an approved agency.
