Commercial construction methods6/7
We have two projects, both are fed/army corps. The section view of the construction method shows vertical 2x4 at the back of the cabinet. There is a 2x4 top and bottom plate, and the plate sits on top of the deck. Basically, take a standard frame less cabinet, move the back in 3 1/2" and build a 2x4 wall at the back of the cabinet. We have submitted a RFI for clarification, but have yet to receive a response.
One of 4 things happened
There is no structural reason for standard casework or seismic installation.
Use AWS /NAWS standard details and ignore it unless the structural drawings show connection details with an engineers stamp
I'd "love" to see a Cross Section pic of this, LOL!
Yes, we get drawings, almost, as bad. We do submittals to AWI standards. They usually go through, approved.
I am not sure if what you are describing is the same as what I am thinking, but the one company I worked for quite a few years ago did all commercial projects and many times when cabinets or reception desks ran perpendicular to a wall or were in the middle of the room they would have a wall in them.
Scott, that is normal practice.
I forgot to mention, like Larry said we always submitted shop drawings with details on how we wanted to build it and they were seldom rejected.
