Deputy Inspection Services specializes in industrial building inspection. When a company is planning to build a new industrial building, or to expand on an existing one, special inspections are required to take place during construction as dictated by the building code and specific contract documents. Building codes are put in place to define a minimum level of safety and quality in structures such as industrial buildings. Building inspections are executed to ensure that the building code is followed throughout. Industrial building inspections are utilized to make sure that that the building is safe to work in and occupy during all aspects of construction and post-construction.
Industrial building inspections are executed by special/ deputy construction inspectors such as Deputy Inspection Services. Industrial building inspections can be employed directly by the owner, or indirectly by firms that are contracted to perform the architectural/ design functions and/ or compiling geological data on soil and other topographical aspects of the job site.
Deputy Inspection Services keeps up with the pace of the ever-changing requirements of the construction industry and makes industrial building inspection effortless for owners and contractors by offering their considerable expertise in a wide array of inspection/ testing services:
Slump, temperature, air content and compression testing for reinforced steel and concrete to ensure compliance with contract requirements.
Mortar quality and pre-construction masonry prism testing for reinforced concrete. Deputy Inspection Services thoroughly tests during the placement of masonry units and reinforced steel, during all grouting operations and before enclosing clean outs.
Continuous or periodic inspection during placement of reinforced steel/rebar before the enclosing of formwork and placement of concrete.
Testing of seismic-force resisting systems, including the inspection of pre-stress/ post-tension concrete to test reinforced steel, pre-stressing tendons, application of stressing forces, and the grouting of bonded pre-stressing tendons.
Welding inspections of steel members or any other connections that bear loads and forces, including the welding of special moment-resisting steel frames and reinforced steel
Nondestructive testing methods on welded, fully restrained connections between ordinary moment frames and special moment-resisting frames built within seismic zones 3 and 4 (California, and parts of Nevada, Oregon and Washington).
Inspections for high strength bolting including the installation and tightening of bolts A325 and A490.
Inspection and testing of all fireproofing to ensure that a structure is in compliance with UBC Standard 7-6.
Inspection of the application of Shot Crete (pneumatically projected concrete which is applied to a surface at a high velocity).
Inspection of the application of torque loads to be preformed for post installed drilled-in expansion or chemical-type anchors in concrete or masonry as required by DSA and OSHPD. Deputy Inspection Services can carry out this inspection as an alternative to inspection during installation.
