GMS engineers and inspectors refreshed their knowledge of welding and bolting inspection procedures at a seminar led by Albert Wong, senior inspector at GMS. The lecture covered types of bolts, welds, connections, and failures, as well as inspection requirements for maintaining quality control of construction. Albert reinforced basic engineering and inspection knowledge and shared photos of some case studies of unusual conditions that are sometimes observed.
