Inspection Services

Efficient Solutions for Cost-Effective Inspections

CBI is certified to perform quality assurance audits and/or special inspections validating conformity of your in-plant quality assurance program or building assemblies as a third party Approved Agency. CBI’s scope of work is listed in its ANAB Certificate of Accreditation to ISO/IEC 17020.

Our goal is to deliver the most efficient inspections possible by leveraging a variety of technologies. Our services can be performed using virtual/remote, in-plant, or in-field inspection procedures depending on the specific needs of each customer.

Quality Assurance (QA) Audits

QA is an important part of successful innovation. While the source of a QA requirement may vary (ISO 9000, evaluation reports, codes, etc.), the goal remains the same: Implementing a systematic process that determines whether a product or service meets specified requirements.

The value of CBI’s team goes beyond determining if a product passes or fails; our inspectors provide a detailed evaluation of every product or process we inspect. Following an audit, CBI staff will provide suggestions for achieving compliance in problem areas, improving processes to maximize efficiency, and pointing out areas of potential liability.

Special Inspections

The International Building Code defines a Special Inspection as: “The inspection of construction requiring the expertise of an approved special inspector to ensure compliance with code and the approved construction documents.”

CBI’s expertise in building industry innovation developments over the last 30 years makes us an obvious fit to perform required third party observations and tests. Our accredited scope for special inspections includes the following areas:

  • Engineered Wood Products: Glue-Laminated Beams, I-Joists, and Structural Composite Lumber
  • Trusses: Metal Plate Connected Wood Trusses, Light Gauge Steel Trusses, and Heavy Timber Trusses
  • Panel Products: Wood, Fiberboard, Composite, Gypsum, Foam Plastic Insulating Sheathing, and Magnesium Oxide
  • Structural and Building Envelope Assemblies: Foundation, Floor, Wall, and Roof Assemblies; Connections; and Exterior Envelope and Covering
