Large holes

The same 60% hole applies on the engineered I beam and the wall they should have drilled multiple holes instead of the 1 Gigantic no top plate left hole.

Thanks for any help- I am heading for the books

Ok found my answer in another post - The large holes are allowed in the webbing, but what sloppy work.

So here is the revised question - I know that the top plate is not suppose to be drilled out more than 60% - however is there an exception when the metal plates are on either side?


Attached is a table you can use.

That does not appear to be a load bearing wall, so I would not be too concerned.

Same here.

Metal plates are for protection from errant sheetrock screws.
