Detailed engineering design and review with the precast fabricator are required prior to developing details for a specific project. Special engineering design is required in high seismic areas. Detailing Considerations If possible, spandrel panels should be cast in one piece to span between columns and should be attached to the columns as close to their centerlines as possible.

They can serve as a guideline for developing details of panel connections and for coordination of details with other materials. Manufacturing tolerances must be coordinated with erection tolerances and tolerances for other building systems. During construction, one surface is usually designated as the primary control surface, the location of which is controlled during erection. The product tolerances given in this section are not additive to the erection tolerances of the primary control surfaces.

However, product tolerances are additive to secondary control surface erection tolerances. Refer to Tolerance Manual for Precast and Prestressed Concrete Construction (MNL-135), published by the Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute, for more information. Limitations of Use These tolerances apply to architectural panels, spandrels, and column covers. These guidelines are generally considered standard in the industry. If closer tolerances are required, they should be clearly indicated on the drawings and specifications.
