Special Inspections are required by the International Code Council and the International Building code and IQS LLC provides personnel who are qualified and certified in accordance with IBC and ICC Model Inspection program. We work closely with geotechnical agencies to augment structural steel activities.
Quote from ICC:
“In the past, special inspection tasks were often delegated to the project owner, registered design professional in responsible charge, and sometimes building contractors. In the 21st century, the responsibilities of the building official in providing oversight of special inspection activities is driven by several factors, including legal liability, insistence on competent performance and completion of work as specified and approved, and by more involvement of local government. Accordingly, the use of certified individuals or accredited organizations is becoming increasingly prevalent and necessary.”
