I would hesitate to characterize this in such broad language.

Here in New York, the building code requires the design professionals to
clearly define a program of testing and inspection...

I must point out that we aren't talking about "what the building code
REQUIRES." We're talking about what owners are willing to pay for,
whether or not it is in their best interests.

In fact, the message to which I was responding, from Paul, stated "we
shouldn't have to wait for the building code to tell us..."

Fine, if the NYBC mandates this. Fine, if every state and local code
requires it.

But you're not going to get the typical project owner to agree to pay
for it on his own volition.
