Structural Steel & Welding Inspections

See how AEIS can assist you in meeting your project requirements...

Steel inspection most often starts with inspection at a steel fabrication facility. We request as much prior notice with respect to the schedule of the out of town shops, however the last minute notifications are not uncommon. Once steel starts to arrive on site, our inspection staff will verify the placement and size of the anchor bolts are correct, base plate grout is performed and samples of the grout tested in our laboratory to verify compressive strength, steel erection which would verify the proper steel piece (by ID number) is set in the correct location, welding and bolting is complete and acceptable, metal deck and shear studs are installed as required. Non-destructive testing (magnetic particle, dye penetrant, ultrasonic, radiography or other tests) will be performed as mandated by the specifications.
