The all-new Eighth Edition of the Construction Inspection Manual puts right at your fingertips all the step-by-step guidance you need when performing a field inspection. It is packed with comprehensive inspection checklists, all of which are clearly organized according to the CSI MasterFormat so you don't overlook a single detail. Scores of ready-to-use checklists make it easy to perform thorough and complete field inspections of any construction project.

These checklists cover multiple inspection points, including:

  • Closeout procedures
  • Facility operations
  • Sitework
  • Pre-cast concrete
  • Metal fabrications
  • Rough carpentry
  • Waterproofing
  • Thermal and moisture protection
  • Doors, windows, and roofs
  • Raceways
  • Water supplies
  • Finishes
  • Fire protection
  • And much more!

A detailed matrix is linked to each item on every checklist, showing if it pertains primarily to special inspections, architectural inspections, engineering inspections or other inspections. Within each of these categories, it indicates sub-groups such as testing laboratory, hazardous material, or safety (for special inspections), civil, structural, mechanical or electrical (for engineering inspections), and legal, government, fire protection, etc (for other inspections).

The Construction Inspection Manual also features extensive testing procedures, and a wealth of ready reference material you'll find invaluable in the field. What's more, it includes sample forms and discussions on project coordination and building codes.
