Lesson Learned/Best Practice

Guy wires need to be installed to construction details.  Details site spacing, guy wire angles, and structural/deck mounting requirements.  Having early discussions regarding details with the MEP trades, steel detailer, and structural engineer may result in an install pattern that saves additional steel bracing and provides clearer direction for specific unit installation.


Suggested Actions for Future Projects

Include in shop drawing review for placement and install of guy wire anchors.
