The purpose of special inspection is to verify that key components of the structure are constructed as specified. The special inspector is the individual or firm responsible for managing and coordinating the inspection and testing program. Special inspection of concrete construction covers both cast-in-place and precast concrete. The inspectors and testing agencies prepare reports that document each inspection or test and clearly identify the work that was inspected or tested, any deficiencies that were identified, and their resolution. An outline of what is included in inspection reports, interim reports, and final reports is provided.
