As a certified structural steel and bolting deputy special inspector, it is our job in verifying that appropriate details in any set of approved plans and specifications are implemented. Whether it be for high-strength bolt fastening of steel or slip critical joints of framing or structural steel components of a building, we at Deputy Special Inspection Mission Viejo will evaluate the statement of special inspections in the approved set of plans and specifications. It is our duty to authenticate that the contractor, if applicable, is installing high-strength bolts per permitted plans and specifications. If any material sampling or tests are necessary, we make it our job to perform these duties. When all is concluded, we ensure that a report is submitted stating whether work is in compliant or noncompliant. This same report should than be submitted to the building official, contractor, and/or registered design professional.

If sampling material is needed, we can be of assistance! We can help to confirm required type, location, frequency and quantities of tests needed to be executed. A written report stating that samples were identified and tested will be sent in either electronically or hand written. Samples that need to be transferred to the lab safely will be done by our team.
