Froehling & Robertson, Inc. has been a leader in the performance of special inspections since the term was coined. Today, F&R helps clients by undertaking the comprehensive inspection and testing of a building's structural elements – as well as some designated, non-structural building systems – during construction. The importance of having qualified firms such as F&R perform these critical inspections has never been more apparent. Not only does a thorough special inspection plan assist in ensuring the integrity of a construction project, but these code-mandated inspections represent one of the most effective tools for reducing the liability exposure faced by project owners.
On a daily basis, F&R staff performs special inspections in the specific disciplines of geotechnical engineering, foundations, soils, cast-in-place concrete, precast concrete, reinforcing steel, masonry, structural steel, sprayed fire resistive materials, EIFS, and more. F&R is able to perform these diverse types of inspections quickly and efficiently because we have on staff the professional engineers, staff engineers, construction managers, project inspectors, engineering technicians, environmental professionals, Metals/NDT technicians, roofing technicians, and AWS certified welding inspectors that are needed to perform these analyses.
