    6022, ouch. My back hurts just thinking about that. Acres of decking with 3/4" puddle welds every low. Sometimes we would get lucky and the engineer would call for every other low in the middle sections but usually it wasn't the case. I made sure I got real good with adding poor stop so I would get to work alone and only lug 10' lengths of light gauge steel. Those were the days....
    the kind of decking and joist spacing makes a big difference on the suck factor.... N deck on 8' centers isn't bad at all.... or... like the current one I'm working on... 26ga 9/16" FormDeck with weld washers on 2' centers.... sucks. at least it's only 6,000 sq ft...
