Industrial Building Inspection

Unlimited Inspection & Construction Fabrication 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 Unlimited Inspection & Construction Fabrication. 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.

Unlimited Inspection & Construction Fabrication 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. Unlimited Inspection & Construction Fabrication 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 provisions shall apply to steel in the seismic force-resisting systems of buildings, structures assigned to seismic design Category D, E or F for compliance with approved requirements (California, and parts of Nevada, Oregon and Washington).
  • Inspections for high strength bolting including the pre-tightening and installation of bolts A325 and A490.
  • Inspection and testing of all fireproofing to ensure that a structure is in compliance with Technical Manual 12-A & Technical manual 12-B.
  •  Inspection of the application of Shot Crete (pneumatically projected concrete which is applied to a surface at a high velocity).
  • Inspection to apply a tension test load is required for post installed drilled-in expansion or chemical-type anchors or reinforcing steel dowels in concrete or masonry by DSA and OSHPD. This procedure, could be used if approved by the designer or/and the building department jurisdiction, as an alternative method of compliance for installations performed without special inspection at the time for installation.
  • Inspection of all drill-in anchors in concrete including: expansion anchors, chemical adhesive and/or grouted anchors in un-reinforced or reinforced masonry construction.
