Chapter 3 Special Inspections Classification
b. Seismic-force-resisting systems. (Seismic Design Category C, D, E or F): as required by NCSBC - 1707.3.
SICC-302.7 Soils and foundations (See SICC-2007 Chapter 11).
a. Shallow footings and foundations. Soils and building foundation elements when either of the following conditions exist:
Problem Soils. The building footprint is located on soils that have been determined by the GER/SER as a problem soils area, as indicated by the approved geotechnical report due to inadequate soil bearing capacities.
Structural Fill. The bearing material under the building footprint consists of compacted structural fill. NCSBC-1704.7 Exception: Special inspections not required during placement of fill less than 12 inches (305 mm) deep.
Deep foundations. Building foundation elements for the following systems:
Pile foundations of all buildings.
Pier foundations of all buildings, assigned to Seismic Design Category C, D, E or F. The Statement of Special Inspections shall specifically include the special inspections required for the seismic- resisting elements.
SICC-302.8 Earth retention systems (See SICC-2007 Chapter 12 and NCSBC Section 1806.2).
All earth retention systems providing a cumulative vertical relief greater than 5 feet in height within a horizontal distance of 50 feet or less of unbalanced fill, including, but not limited to:
Building foundation walls.
Soldier piles and lagging.
Soil nailing systems.
Braced or shored walls.
SICC-302.10 Sprayed fire-resistant materials. (See SICC-2007 Chapter 13.)
All sprayed fire-resistant materials applications.
SICC-302.9 Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems (EIFS) (See SICC-2007 Chapter 14).
All EIFS applications, except those installed over a water resistive barrier with a means of draining moisture to the exterior, or those installed over masonry or concrete walls.
SICC-302.11 Smoke control. (See SICC-2007 Chapter 15.)
All smoke control systems.
SICC-302.12 Architectural, Mechanical, Electrical Components. (See SICC-2007 Ch 16.)
Seismic Design Category C, D, E or F, as required by NCSBC-1707.7 (see NCSBC-1621).
