58 It is always wise to consider the connection type to be used at the conceptual design stage. A continuously designed structure of lighter weight but with more complex fabrication work can be more expensive than a slightly heavier design with simple joints. Once the overall concept is decided the connections should always be given at least the same attention as the design of the main members which they form. Structural adequacy is not, in itself, the sole criterion because the designer must endeavour to provide an efficient and effective structure at the lowest cost.
