[OnDemand Webinar] Stadiums and Vertical Structures Webinar: How to Get the Most out of Your Next Structural Steel Inspection

Do you know how to efficiently integrate a high-caliber structural steel inspection group into the construction of your next vertical structure or stadium? Special inspectors who maintain ICC certification in areas such as structural steel, welding, bolting, and fireproofing are a trove of information and, if well integrated into your project team, can help save time when questions arise during construction or spot issues that would affect the performance or safety of a structure.

Watch as our best-in-class structural steel inspectors, Pat LaPlante, ICC-certified inspector and ASNT NDT Level-II and Taylor Carlson, ICC-certified inspector and ASNT NDT Level-II, whose experience includes US Bank Stadium and other major structures across the country, share their expertise on the structural steel inspections process and how your project team can best leverage an inspector’s expertise whether you’re the structural engineer of record, an architect, contractor or a fabrication shop manager.

Learn more about:

  • The role of an inspection group in the erection of vertical steel structures
  • Communication best practices for inspectors with project partners
  • Relationship expectations you should have for your next inspector
