> the permit.  This will note the special inspection and structural
> observation requirements.
> --Request the IOR's reports, including his signoff for the project.
> --Request all reports from the testing laboratory.
> --I believe that the Contractor must also sign a statement that the work
> was done in accordance with the contract documents.  Ask for this signed
> form.
> --It is the Owner not the Contractor's obligation to arrange for the IOR
> and special inspections.  The code does not allow the Contractor to hire
> or pay for the testing lab.
> --Review the 2001 CBC regarding structural observation.  The 2007 CBC
> states that the "Owner" as opposed to the Contractor, shall employ a
> registered design professional to perform structural observation.
> 
> Make the requirements work for you.
> 
> When the above has been sorted out make a visit to the site and pop some
> ceiling tiles and verify that the unistrut assembly is in general
> conformance with your design.  Verify that the equipment anchorage that
> can be observed is what was required.
