Structural plans shall include the data and information described in this section and in Chapter 16. Structural calculations shall be made available to the department upon request.
- Where structural elements are normally detailed on shop or working drawings, approval of construction documents shall be conditioned upon deferred submittal of such shop or working drawings showing the approval of the registered design professional who prepared the structural construction documents, or of a signed statement by such registered design professional that such drawings were prepared to his or her satisfaction.
- In cases where the detailing of structural elements has been made on the basis of fire-resistance ratings, load tables, or similar data as given in manufacturer's catalogues, approval of construction documents shall be conditional upon submission of a manufacturer's designation attesting to the accuracy of the data and indicating that such data were derived in conformance with the provisions of this code. Where the detailing of structural elements has been made on the basis of data published in technical documents of recognized authority issued or accredited by the agency or association promulgating the applicable referenced standard, such manufacturer's designation will not be required.
Foundation plans shall show compliance with the requirements of Chapter 18 of this code regarding foundation design and shall show the plan locations, design loads, design elevations of the bottoms, and details as to sizes, reinforcements, and construction of all footings, piers, foundation walls, pile groups, and pile caps. The levels of footings of adjacent structures shall be indicated or, if the adjacent structures are pile supported, this shall be stated. Where applicable, the plans shall include underpinning details. In addition, there shall be a statement indicating the character and minimum class of the soil strata required for the support of the foundation; the allowable soil pressure used for the design of footings; and the character, class, and presumptive bearing capacity of the bearing stratum to which piling is required to penetrate. The types and design capacities of piling and the records of required borings or test pits shall also be shown. In addition, foundation plans shall include insulation details as required by the New York City Energy Conservation Code.
Floor plans and sections showing all structural requirements shall be provided for all levels.
Drawings shall show sizes, sections, and locations of members, and such other information as may be required to indicate clearly all structural elements and special structural engineering features.
Where trusses are employed, a diagram or table shall indicate the loads or moments in the various members under the design loading conditions. The requirement for a diagram or table may be waived when the trusses consist of elements selected from load tables or similar data, subject to the requirements for verification described in this code.
Where pre-stressed members are employed, a schedule or table shall show the total prestressing forces and the method and sequence of application.
