Re: Jurisdictions That REQUIRE Engineer's Observations

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I read Bill's post another way.  I  am not aware of any code requirement that _the_ Engineer of Record visit the site. Chapter 17 indicates when _a_ registered design professional must review the work, and when it is _the_ EoR who designates what inspections be performed.

Around me, it's a rare jurisdiction that enforces Chapter 17, much less requires the EoR to do an onsite.

Bill,
 
1709.1, .2 amd, .3 are fairly explicit on when its required.  The Caveat is, 1709.2 items 4 and 5.  The building official can specifically require observation without specific reason.
 
Im licensed in 17 states, they all require it, even Occ II in low wind and low seismic.
 
The other issue.... I want to do it, gotta sleep at night.

Can anyone furnish me a list of all the states, counties, cities, etc.  
that REQUIRE by statute the EoR to make official construction site  
visits?

Thanks.
