Garage Door Delegated Design Submittals
April 11, 2018
Within the specifications issued for a project’s division 8 sectional doors some projects may call out Delegated Design Submittals as part of their required submittal package. What are these submittals and how are they different than typical shop details?
Garage Door Delegated Design Submittals vs. Shop Drawings
Shop drawings are a common part of project submittals for a garage door. ArmRLite shop drawings are generated by our senior engineering staff and are specific to the project they are requested for. Shop drawings will show elevations, track details, jamb details, and cut sheets of the door or doors to be supplied on a project. Shops can take anywhere from 5 to 10 business days to generate depending on the complexity of the project. A request for shop drawings should be placed once a contract is awarded and not before.
Delegated Design Submittals are similar to shops in that they show specific details of the garage door product. However, delegated design submittals involve having the details reviewed and signed off on by a P.E. (Principle Engineer). Often times projects with seismic or wind load requirements will need delegated design submittals in addition to shop drawings. Delegated Design Submittals cannot be revised the same way a shop drawing set would be. Each time a revision is done, the P.E. will need to perform their calculations and review over again which incurs significant costs if multiple revisions are needed. Delegated design submittals should be order only if a contract is awarded to a garage door dealer/installer and after the shop details have been supplied and approved (no revisions).
