Importance of Staged Construction Inspections
Importantly, key construction items can be covered by subsequent constrution stages and hence if they are not checked during the construction program they may not be able to be checked at the end.
Tie down rods and tied down straps are a good case in point, especially for metal roofs.
The attached photo is a good example. The Engineers Plans specifically require that tie down rods be used to anchor the steel beam. Unfortunately this was not done but it was picked up by a Houspect Building during a Staged Construction inspection and subsequently remedied by the Builder.
