If you’re building or purchasing a property like a home, or a building, you probably know about home inspections. However, do you know about engineering inspections? This level of inspection isn’t needed in most cases, but when do you need to have a project or building inspected by an engineer?
When building a new project through the building permitting or construction process, certain milestones are required, one of which is engineering inspections. Inspections involve a certified or knowledgeable inspector to come to your job site and ensure that all applicable building codes are being met and the intent of the design professional is being met. Typically, these construction inspections are covered under the cost of your building permit but can impact your construction schedule as they can often take the inspector a few days to arrive. High Plains Engineering & Consulting, LLC can perform these same inspections, with a few exceptions, within 24 hours if given proper notice. We will provide a letter for all inspections performed! This letter will act as a sign off on these aspects for your permit.
It’s a good idea to consult an engineer if you’re considering making any structural changes to a building, especially if you’re not sure if you can knock down an existing wall that might be involved in supporting part of the structure. You also should call an engineering inspector if you notice any visible signs of damages or faults in the construction of your home or building. For example, if you find evidence of significant water damage, cracking walls, vibrating floors, sagging ceilings or roofing, or significant flaws in the concrete, an engineering inspection can help you identify all problems as well as inform you of the scope of repairs, including costs.
