Seminar Description

The Special Inspection webinar provides a general overview of Special Inspection from Chapter 17 of the 2018 International Building Code® (IBC®) with a focus on the duties of the engineer. We will highlight the engineer’s duties vs. the special inspector’s duties, compare jurisdictional inspection vs. special inspection, and look at the required structural special inspections.
