A thorough pre-pour inspection should be conducted, especially if your company didn't do the initial assembly. Here are some problem points to check for:
- Check all measurements, including footprint, wall openings, lintels. Check for level, plumb and square walls and openings.
- Ensure that all reinforcing steel has been properly placed and inspected by the local building department, if required by local codes.
- Make sure that all sleeves, fasteners, braces for the formwork and provisions for attaching floor decks are in place.
- Check form system for irregularities, including damaged forms, gaps, weak spots and irregular joints.
