I have a project where the wood truss designer/manufacturer has a note on their submittal stating that the EOR of the building 'must review and verify the correct loads' are being used. This note specifically refers only to those load cases involving wind loads. Not the basic parameters such as wind speed and exposure, but the actual calculated design pressures.
In my opinion, as the EOR I tell them the basics (Design Code, Wind Speed, etc), but it is their responsibility to calculate the various pressures on individual members.
Am I wrong?
