RE: 2006 IBC CMU Construction

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Correct.

The MSJC (maasonry code) has LONG gone away from the whole half-stress thing
if no inspections are done.  As Paul pointed out, there are levels of
inspection.  The base level is realistically not much more than reviewing
the various submittals for the masonry and I believe some basic part-time
inspection of a few things...if I remember correctly.

That is my understanding.  There are some "levels" of inspection, but all
masonry will require inspection under the new code.

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.
