“Introduction to Engineering Construction Inspection” offers expert tools and advice on construction inspection for buildings and civil engineering projects, including construction of roads, highways, pipelines, reservoirs, water and wastewater projects, hydroelectric, and other large engineered projects. More than 150 informative illustrations supplement expert coverage of the activities and processes involved in observing and documenting a project through the construction phase-from initial site work and geotechnical work to major engineered structural systems in concrete and steel, and project acceptance by the owner.
This unique reference offers an applied introduction to the process of observing and documenting the course and sequence of non-building construction projects (roads, highways, and other large engineered projects) as it enters the contruction phase - from initial site work and structural work to project completion and project acceptance by owner.
