SUBJECT: Detailing Bolts

Past office practice has been to detail field bolts and shop bolts separately. From now on, do not distinguish between the two. It doesn’t make any difference from a design standpoint. Use a solid symbol for all bolts. The structural steel bolts, which should be included in the plans, allow the contractor to use field or shop bolts as is appropriate. Shop plans will still be detailed per industry standards. Keep this in mind when checking shop plans.

Include this instruction in Chapter 7 of your BDM, until a revision can be made.
