WEBINAR: MN Concrete Forum - Construction Special Inspections
Anyone who has watched a building under construction can appreciate its complexity and sophistication. Occasionally, inspection and testing requirements occur that the local code official may not be qualified or experienced to address, so third-party assistance is needed. The building codes address this need through a specific requirement for structural tests and “special” inspections. A special inspection can be required for materials, installation, fabrication, erection or placement of components and connections where special expertise is needed. This presentation will cover the requirement of special inspections as well as some examples of when construction testing and inspections did not go as planned.
The presenters will be:
