Time for some quality control. Desert Sun Commercial Inspections Hobbs New Mexico.

I was called in for another inspection on the commercial project in Hobbs New Mexico.

They were progressing at a faster pace than in the last Two inspections.

But there was a couple of issues that I had to discuss with the site supervisor.

I asked when Quality control takes over. Thinking this should be an ongoing inspection process when any building is being erected. I would think that a company tis size would have a Quality control supervisor on site at all times.

This was not the case. I brought  the several issues I found to the attention of the site supervisor the have the issues addressed.

Here is what I found when inspecting this commercial project on my last visit.

Take a look at these anchors. there are Four of them in each base. All four need to be tight.

Loose anchor bolts.Even though this is not the end of the world. Why are the nuts not tight?

For proper installation these have to be tightened and torqued to a specific pound of torque.

Loose anchor bolts.I was not looking to find a lot of issues. But when I found these issues. I wondered how many more were loose.

 

 

 

I informed the site supervisor that there is a safety issue in the collision center.

There is an overhead door installed too close to the walk in service door.

Take a look at the chain for the door.

Chain in doorway.The chain is hanging in the way of the door. A guide will need to be installed. But this will actually limit the proper usage of the chain assembly.

This means the guide for the chain needs to be made of a nylon material. This way each time the chain slides against the guide when the door is being opened and shut, you don't have a ton of noise.

Just another day in the life of Desert Sun Commercial inspections in Carlsbad, New Mexico.

Hello Maria,

This is true, but the good thing is that these are anchor bolts. They can be tightened to specs.

Have a nice weekend in Manchester.

Hi Joan,

Most owners are not builders just users of the buildings. Mast don't have a clue to what is right or wrong.

Have a great day in Denver. Go Broncos.

Hi Conrad,

YEP,  and all the work to write up things that should not be there. Like inspecting a brand new home and finding way too many issues.

Have a nice day in Webster my friend.

That chain is just plain stupid. I would think the install can be done on either side. Good post. Have a great day in the land of the sun.

Oh my goodness!  Why is it when I look at those bolts, I think of the larger bolt problem of the San Francisco Bay Bridge, which had faulty bolts holding the span together.  What a difference a bolt can make:-)

Hi Toni,

There are a lot of these "Baddies" out there. Inspectors are the only defense for the owners.

Hi Gita,

There is a ton more wiork that you don't see. I post only pictures that may have been of interest to the readers. But overall there is a ton of work inspecting properly.

Have a good SuperBowl Sunday in Bucks County.

Hi Scott,

I think the design was off about a foot. The chain is just a poor choice of planning.

Have a great Sunday in Illinois.

Hello Myrl,

Now that is a dangerous situation. And could lead to even worse.
