The IBC specifies requirements for the Structural Engineer of Record (SER) if some of a project design is to be delegated to a specialty structural engineer (SSE). Although seemingly straightforward, the process to successfully accomplish delegated design relies on collaboration of many parties. There is not much black and white and much gray to navigate to be successful with your project.
