Title: Building Code Requirements for Inspections of Adhesive Anchors in Concrete
Author(s): Mahmut Ekenel and Brian Gerber
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 1-8
Keywords: adhesive anchors, International Building Code®, special inspection.
Abstract:Inspections in building construction have vital importance and are needed to verify that work considered critical to life, public safety and property protection is being or has been performed according to the approved plans and specifications. While the building official is obligated to inspect the construction progression at certain stages, some building construction activities demand closer scrutiny. This additional level of surveillance is known as special inspection. Because proper installation of adhesive anchors requires inspection procedures beyond those in the building codes, special inspection is needed. Clear, detailed specifications are essential to assure that the anchor is installed as intended, and verification in the form of inspection is needed to further assure installation-related tasks are performed properly.
