Special Inspection
Presented by Phillip J. Samblanet, P.E., Executive Director of the Masonry Society
February 15, 2018
8am-12pm
AGC
686 Mariposa Street
Denver, CO 80204

Special inspection is increasingly being required on structural masonry construction projects, and it will likely become commonplace in the coming years. This course is targeted towards key field personnel, architects, foreman, superintendents, estimators, project managers, and field techs for testing companies.
 
Topics covered include:
·         What is special inspection?
·         Why is it important?
·         When is it required?
·         Why special inspection sometimes varies from job to job?
·         Who is able to perform special inspections?
·         What is to be inspected and how often?
·         How to avoid conflicts with the Special Inspector?
 
In addition, some key aspects of special inspection including placement of reinforcement, anchors and grout will be examined in more depth, so that everyone knows what is expected, why, and repercussions if not done properly. Issues inspectors may be looking for in regards to masonry materials, proper placement of materials, mixing and placement of mortar and grout, testing and appropriate severe weather procedures will also be reviewed.
 
The course will be presented by Phillip J. Samblanet, P.E., Executive Director of the Masonry Society, who serves on the International Code Council’s (ICC) Structural Masonry Special Inspectors Examination Development Committee and who has written several articles on the topic and trained hundreds of special inspectors during his career.

Appropriate repair of masonry structures begins with understanding the causes of distress. It is difficult to cure a patient without first diagnosing their illness. This presentation will discuss various types of masonry damage and the most common causes. We will also discuss appropriate repair methods for various types of distress in masonry. Additionally, the presentation will discuss the state of the art for strengthening of existing masonry structures for adaptive retrofit, seismic or blast hardening, or other reasons. We will discuss new materials and methods that can help make repairs effective and, often, invisible. Bring your masonry challenges and questions!
