Description
Many states, including Georgia, now utilize the International Building Code (2012) as the backbone for design criteria of new structures. Chapter 17 in that Code requires the use of “Structural Tests and Special Inspections.” As design and construction professionals we need to effectively use this relatively new tool for the benefit of our projects.

  1. Our presentation explains the fundamentals of a Special Inspection Program, with an emphasis on:
  2. The purpose and intent of a Special Inspection program
  3. An historical perspective for present day Special Inspections
  4. The “key players” in a Special Inspection program, and an outline of their responsibilities
  5. The difference between continuous and periodic inspections
  6. An example Statement of Special Inspection, and a Schedule of Special Inspections
  7. Descriptions of the various testing involved in a Special Inspection program
  8. Report examples, including Daily and Final reports
  9. A discussion about the costs of a Special Inspection program
