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.

  • b.

    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.

  • Retaining walls.

  • Soldier piles and lagging.

  • Soil nailing systems.

  • Sheet piling.

  • Braced or shored walls.

  • Tied-back 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).
