Does the inspector have jurisdiction over the location of construction joints? Some of these must have to be located at the contractor's convenience.
Although construction joints are located partly to satisfy the requirements of job scheduling, their location cannot be left purely to the discretion of the contractor. The inspector should see that in floors they are located as near to points of minimum shear as possible, in walls near the midpoint between columns and preferably at the corners of a window, and in pavements at least ten feet from the preceding transverse joint.
