-Do these firms only do quality testing for CoSM projects?
-Who do we rely upon to ensure quality testing for developments in SMTX, especially multi-family as we've all seen some questionable construction over the last 8-10 years. Do we just rely on the developers or is there a requirement that they hire independent firms as we do?

Thanks!

For all PICP projects the developer is required to hire their own testing lab. The city inspector is required to be at each project, during all testing to ensure each item meets or exceeds city specifications. The city inspector also receives all testing reports for each project and it is saved in the specific project folder.
