2006 IBC CMU Construction

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I?ve been reviewing the masonry inspection section of Chapter 17 of the 2006 IBC which California will adopt January 1st. It looks to me that the long-used practice of masonry construction designed for half stress not requiring inspection is no longer in the code. Does this mean that masonry construction for items such as screen walls and retaining walls, (no matter what the height), will require inspection per Chapter 17?

Thanks in advance,

Larry Hauer S.E.
