PROJECT QUESTION: Can the precast ornamental panels be cast in three separate pours, i.e. bottom horizontal, vertical picket section, top rail? The only supplier that we are aware of has stated that a full height rail section pour will not provide an acceptable product to meet the project specifications.

Response: Separate pours for the ornamental rail panels as described is acceptable as long as the Contractor provides design calculations for the joint connections showing the joints transfer design loadings appropriately and the look or configuration of the ornamental rail panels meet contract details and requirements.
