New Construction Foundation Inspection

New Construction Foundation Inspection 


There are three inspection phases when building a New Construction Home.

1)  New Construction Foundation Inspection 

2)  New Construction Pre-Drywall Inspection

3)  New Construction Final Inspection

The first phase of the new construction inspection process starts when the home’s foundation make-up has been complete, and the builder is ready to pour concrete.  This is normally a pre- pour inspection and it covers the general quality of workmanship in completing preparations for concrete placement.

This inspection phase is performed by a licensed engineer prior to backfilling of soil against the foundation walls, after the forms have been removed from the concrete. The engineer will observe the foundation prior to laying the floor slab. 

The purpose of the pre-pour inspection is to help spot-check the overall quality of work before the concrete is poured over the excavated beams, reinforcing bars, plumbing, & post-tensioned cable system.
