Assuming only limited experience in construction on the part of the reader, Building Construction Inspection: A Guide for Architects explores the inspector's role in determining if building work conforms to provisions of the design.
Among specific topics discussed are:
- Planning and codes
- Safety and testing
- Concealed work
- Roofing and flashing
- Windows and doors
- Accessories and equipment
- Plumbing, HVAC and mechanical work
- Electrical work
- And much more!
Also included is a section on final inspection and closeout procedures. As an added feature, it contains a "Memory Jogger" section that may be used in the field or prior to visiting a site.
