2018 IBC Chapter 17 Explained - Special Inspections and Tests
This presentation endeavors to review the 2018 IBC Chapter 17 requirements for construction quality control, including testing, inspections and structural observations. The goal is to help specify with confidence, clear and robust quality control provisions within the construction documents, without being either excessive or inadequate. The Chapter 17 provisions are coordinated with and include quality control provisions found in many of the most often used standards, such as AISC, ACI and TMS.
