Everyone agrees that inspecting buildings during their construction is important—and that it could be done a lot better than in the past. Suggestions for improving inspection practice include: (1) Require the structural engineering designer himself to inspect any building he designs; (2) or require him to inspect only selected types of buildings; (3) require the owner to designate a building inspector before issuing him a building permit; (4) require that critical formwork be designed by a qualified structural engineer; (5) require the mandatory certification of building inspectors; and (6) place much greater emphasis on training existing building inspectors.
