Abstract:
Embedded steel plates with headed studs (embeds) serve as connections to structural steel framing, façade and curtain wall systems, elevator rails, steel or precast stairs, mechanical-electrical-plumbing components, and miscellaneous additional items. The need to coordinate with other trades, tolerance conflicts, and other issues can make embed placement difficult for the concrete contractor. Members of the American Society of Concrete Contractors (ASCC) provide recommendations directed at ways that design and construction teams can improve the constructability of embeds.
