Class 2. Data That Must Be Metric Only
To assist manufacturers with metric conversion, we
recommend the following submittal classes be utilized.
Following types of items must be submitted in SI only.
Classes should be supplemented for each project.
Primarily, any data generated specifically for this project
must be submitted in SI only.
Please contact us regarding detail of items listed here.
. Concrete Design Mixes
There is gray area in this classification system.
. Concrete Test Data
. Core Bore Depths and Data
Our guiding principle is that if a construction firm makes
. Aggregate Mixes Must Show Metric Sieves
an honest, good faith effort to comply with metric
. Mechanical Air and Water Flow or Balancing Data
guidance, then we should work with them and allow
. Environmental or Hazardous Material Data
minor variations where needed to promote the greater
. Most Test Data of various natures
goal of smooth, overall transition.
. Other data generated for this project, not in
bound, preprinted catalogs or publications.
We would generally encourage project managers to push
non-essential submittals into class 3 wherever feasible.
To absolutely minimize the time and cost impact of
Class 1. Drawings That Must Be Metric Only
metric conversion, we have recommended an additional
class of submittal data.
English units are not permitted on these submittals.
Drawings must use metric scales. In general, any
This allows us to meet the national mandate of complete
drawing that is job specific, and is custom generated for
metric conversion, while allowing the extensive body of
this project, must be in metric only. These are some
technical information to be fully converted over a period
of a few years.
