Multifamily projects and complex single family homes are subject to a satisfactory technical review. This review requires the builder to complete an application and submit it along with construction drawings, geotechnical report and building envelope details.
Upon enrollment, the project is added to the inspection list. The project will be reviewed by a Technical Advisor on a rotational schedule.
Key areas of interest and concern are envelope details at every phase of detailing, including the damp-proofing/waterproofing of the foundation. Drainage, geotechnical concerns, interfaces between envelope details and projections such as decks, windows, hose bibs, etc. Surface applied membranes of ALL types are of particular interest, be it peel and stick, deck membranes, or foundation mats. Additionally, the Technical Advisor will look for framing quality that will not adversely affect the fit and finish, sound HVAC design and compliance, potential conflicts between design elements of the home and good construction practices.
Final inspection is the one mandatory inspection that must be requested by the builder once the building has received an occupancy permit and it is cleaned and ready for occupancy. To book your final inspection, please contact your account representative.
