<< New construction, 8" cmu, solid grout, #5 @ 16" o.c. vert., f'm=1500psi,
axial load from roof taken by steel columns, not cmu wall. Design with
deputy insp., D+L+E=1.28<1.33
Deputy insp. CLEARLY called out on the structural drawings but guess
what.... contractor did not have deputy inspection during construction.

Any ideas out there?
