499.01 DESCRIPTION
Schedule and distribute working drawings, which are described in TC-1.03 and TC-4.01. Working drawings shall exhibit good drafting practices and represent the original work of the Contractor, fabricator, or supplier. Duplicated portions of the Plans will not be accepted. When requested by the Administration or consultant, submit calculations or other information deemed necessary to backup working drawings. Sign and seal calculations and other backup material by a professional engineer registered in the State of Maryland.
499.02 MATERIALS
Not applicable.
499.03 CONSTRUCTION
499.03.01 Schedule. As a first order of work, prepare and submit a schedule for the submission of the working drawings as specified in 499.03.02 or 499.03.03. Coordinate the schedule with and in full accord with the Progress Schedule submitted to the procurement officer as specified in GP-8.04 and TC-5.02.
The schedule shall include each type of working drawings (e.g. form plans, structural steel, etc.), approximate number of drawings to be reviewed, estimated date of first submission, and estimated rate of submission of drawings (e.g. 5/wk). Where possible, submit the most crucial drawings first with sufficient time for review to minimize delays during construction.
499.03.02 Consultant Engineering Firm. When the Contract Documents specify that a consultant engineering firm is to review the working drawings for the structure, send all working drawings to that firm.
To expedite the checking and distribution of working drawings, fabricators or suppliers may send prints directly to the appropriate consultant engineering firm with copies of all correspondence to the Contractor, Director - Office of Structures, and the District Engineer. If the Contractor requests that all plans be routed through the Contractor’s office, then the establishment of that procedure should be the first order of work in order to avoid possible misunderstandings as to the processing. Be advised that this plan of action will delay the turnaround time and will not constitute grounds for complaint or a time extension.
The Contractor, fabricator, or supplier shall furnish to the consultant engineering firm 10 prints each of all working drawings, etc., for primary review.
Once primary review is complete, the Contractor, fabricator, or supplier shall furnish to the consultant engineering firm additional prints (number to be furnished by primary reviewer) for stamping and forwarding to the Administration’s Office of Structures for secondary review and distribution.
All working drawings for the structures will not be considered accepted until they bear the acceptance stamps of both the consultant engineering firm and the Administration’s Office of Structures.
499.03.03 Office of Structures. When no consultant engineering firm is specified, send all working drawings for the structures to the Director - Office of Structures.
To expedite the checking and distribution of working drawings, fabricators or suppliers may send prints directly to the Director with copies of all correspondence to the Contractor and the District Engineer. If the Contractor requests that all drawings be routed through the Contractor’s office, then the establishment of that procedure should be the first order of work in order to avoid possible misunderstandings as to the processing. Be advised that this plan of action will delay the turnaround time and will not constitute grounds for complaint or a time extension.
The Contractor, fabricator, or supplier shall furnish to the Director 10 prints each of all working drawings, etc., for primary review.
Once primary review is complete the Contractor, fabricator, or supplier shall furnish to the Director additional prints (number to be furnished by primary reviewer) for final review and distribution.
499.03.04 Revisions and Substitutions. Send all modifications, regardless of whether or not the Contract includes a consultant engineering firm, to the Director - Office of Structures for acceptance. Any modifications implemented, without written acceptance from the Director - Office of Structures, will be subject to the requirements of GP-5.02.
499.04 MEASUREMENT AND PAYMENT
