Have been asked to evaluate an ongoing facade repair project, which requires removal of veneer along the floor slab edges for shelf angle and flashing repairs. I observed that the contractor is supporting brick above areas of removal with short 2x4 "cripples" spaced 3 to 5 feet apart, and my experience tells me this is inadequate. I typically require the use of structural steel plates or angles and screw-jacks or hydraulic jacks. QUESTION: Does anyone know of a generally accepted or documented standard that would apply to this case. It would be preferable to reference a documented standard that any qualified contractor should use as a guide.

Several of the tooling and casting requirements of a part can be addressed at the design stage. If these requirements are not addressed at the design stage, lot of time is spent in design iteration when the design reaches the die caster. These design issues lead to increase in time and cost of production leading to delay in time to market and reduced profits for the organization. Download Now
