In this webinar video, a cross functional team of construction experts will discuss processes, procedures, and pitfalls associated with the shop drawing process. Framed within the context of construction claims investigations, the discussion covers the importance of shop drawings and the responsibilities of the various parties throughout the construction process. The impact of Building Information Modeling (BIM) on the shop drawing process is also explored.

The Structural Engineer’s Role
Mark discusses the role and responsibilities of the consulting structural engineer in this process, the unique issues associated with specialty engineered shop drawings, and he will highlight some potential pitfalls involved in the submittal process from a structural engineer’s perspective. Mark also presents a real-world example of what went wrong in a landmark structural collapse.
