Daily Field Report
As requested, a ASEC technician was present at the above referenced site for the purpose of conducting a slab on grade and perimeter slab footing inspection and bearing testing for lot #39
Slab appears to be inconsistent in the following regards:
Rebar lap distance
Lack of rebar ties
Lack of 3” rod chair spacing
Lack of form work
Missing corner bars
Rebar exceeding footing length
Lack of uniformity in footing excavation
The slab preparations appear not to be in accordance with Southeast Zone, Date 02/31/2016 Pulte Structural drawling. The footing evaluation was performed by visual inspection, hand probing and dynamic cone penetrometer (DCP) testing.
During the evaluation, well compacted fill soils were encountered underlain by residual soils. These soils were found to be capable of supporting the building structure utilizing an allowable soil bearing pressure of 2,000 psf. The footings are the proper depth and width and have been prepared in accordance with IRC 2012 and the Georgia Amendments.
The superintendent has been notified of these findings.
Lot #12 is not ready for concrete placement. Re-evaluation is recommended.
See attached DCP/Boring Sheet for full data as well as the attached photos for the inconsistency of the slab preparation.
