What Are Special Inspections?

Special Inspections verify the specified construction materials, how they are applied, and the materials made from them, and are all following proper design intent. These inspections help reduce costly failures. With this certification, you can be confident that CSI has the building code knowledge required to understand and verify the code requirements.

Concrete Construction Inspections
Concrete Construction Inspections
When conducting concrete construction inspections, our geotechnical engineering professionals look at the type of concrete used, if the concrete was poured properly, and assess how the concrete mix was used. This, along with checking the reinforcements and how the concrete was cured, gives us a sense of how safe the concrete structure is.
