Augmenting Seismic Installation On Projects Internationally
As an active member of the preconstruction team, ISAT will augment the project team with installation oversight and inspection assistance.
The common goal is to have the field labor install seismic bracing one time and install it correctly. Whether we work hand-in-hand with the local code authority, as an adjunct to a private Inspector of Record (IOR) or an extension of the jobsite quality control staff, ISAT field services are unmatched in the industry.
While it is very important to write clear specifications, design in proper options and ensure the subcontractors carry a proper number in their bids, CODE compliance all comes down to inspection. Current construction practices have proven uninformed inspectors or misled installers are huge hurdles in the path of streamlined code compliance.
THE BIG QUESTION: Who is responsible for providing an owner with a building that meets the code?
THE ANSWER: In reality, it starts and ends with the Construction Oversight Team.
International Building Code
Dealing with the recent International Building Code (IBC) changes regarding seismic bracing of mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) systems has almost every municipality, code authority, design consultant, MEP subcontractor and GC wondering how to deal with the lack of education.
ISAT is the leader in nonstructural seismic building code compliance.
