Baseplate Grouting

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
A question has come up regarding verification of the grouting of column baseplates.  The concrete was special inspected so the embedded bolts were inspected also.  But the column was in a masonry cavity and it was enclosed before the next inspection.
This also happens with blockouts in concrete slabs.  The slab is poured, the baseplate is still not grouted and all of a sudden the blockouts are filled and the question comes up -- were they grouted?
Is anybody specifying anything special for these inspections or does somebody have any recommendations as to how this should be handled?
