This seminar will
discuss in detail the specific special inspection requirements for concrete
construction as listed in Chapter 17 of the 2015 International Building Code
(IBC). The class will cover in detail
the specific items requiring special inspection and testing such as
reinforcement, formwork, concrete materials, anchors, placement, and curing
techniques. Clarification will be
provided as to how “periodic” special inspections should be specified in order
to comply with ACI recommendations and a significant amount of time will be
spent discussing the structural engineer of record’s responsibility in
overseeing the special inspection program.
The class will also cover the benefits of using an “approved” fabricator
and what qualifications may be needed in order for precast fabricators to be
approved. Sample statements of special
inspections will be developed for a couple of project-specific examples.
