    Just thought I would post <a target="_blank" href=http://community.webshots.com/album/29273219cTXoQhJgZm>pics</a> of the jobsite I am on, since I have mentioned it a time or two.
    It's a 100,000SF Hospital in SanDestin, FL. on US Hwy 98. We should be complete for Christmas next year.

    Those pics show over 500Tons of Steel.

    Oh yeah, I am one of the project managers for the General Contractor

    I'm one of your favorite headaches.........the dreaded "Builing Inspector"! I'm in TX though, so no favors for you.
    Gotta love them hospitals, if you have one going on you don't have time to do anything else! I should have moved my office there on the last one I was doing inspections on!

    Actually is steel erection. Now you know the guy in the truck with Jim Bob's Steel Erection written on the side isn't an adult film star. The job makes great conversation at my wifes work parties. Especially the concrete vibrator thats 15" long an runs on 110 volts or the gas powered ones. LOL

    Most inspectors are alright once you get to know them. 90% of the differences are based on interpretation of Code. The headaches here are the state health inspectors and their code and when 2 codes call for two different things.

    You have to love that, I have to deal with that on a daily basis!
    Here in Texas we also have the Texas Accesability Standards Act, which supercedes the ADA. One more headache!

    Really we are guy's just like everone else, our job is just to make sure ALL builders residential and comercial meet, and this is the key

    MINIMUM BUILDING STANDARDS!!!

    I personally love the job and left a job making 70+ K a year to go back to it! It is definately a labor of love because you don't do it for the money!
