The October 2nd meeting was a beefsteak affair at Fire Company 2 in Wayne NJ. There was a short presentation regarding Superior Walls and problems with the product when not properly installed, and when standard footing and foundation systems are originally proposed for new construction, but substituted without prior notice to building departments. Another issue is the footings and walls are being installed without footing inspections. Preempt problems by discussing this with contractors before permits are issued. let them know plans are required before a change like this takes place, and let them know that footing inspections for Superior Walls are required just the same as conventional footings and foundations.
