It fits! - Tolerences aren't important, until it doesn't fit [Q22]

The tolerances for the steel fabrication and erection that are provided in the AISC Code of Standard Practice are an essential elements in Steel Construction. In part, these tolerances establish the quality of the work, but related issues are also of significance. These other issues are tolerance coordination among building systems, adjustment at building system interfaces, and the accommodation of follow-on trades, such as the structural steel frame as a follow-on to the foundations and follow-on trades to the frame such as the façade/curtain wall. The presentation will cover a range of codes, standards, and design guides that attendees use on a daily basis.
