EXACTLY! The special inspector costs come out of our pocket and he/she
would have to witness the taking of our grout cube specimens every time we
mix a batch of grout. This is for a 1000 MW power plant where we use a lot
of grout for pipeways, equipment structures, and leveling equipment.
I understand our building officials logic about considering grout like
concrete however I have never ran across this before and none of my
associates have either.

"special inspection" means you must use a deputy inspector- one who has
taken a test for the areas of specialty; i.e. welding, epoxy, concrete,
etc. The deputy inspector is not an employee of the agency. In our area
the cost is a min. of $300 per visit.
