Site Inspection - Pre-Installation Survey

For Tents, Canopies, Structures, Fabric Buildings & Shelters

This procedure should be completed by a qualified professional or someone who has experience with a tent/canopy installation process. Once complete, the survey will then be given to the person responsible for installation such as a crew leader, job foreman, or installation supervisor.

The purpose of a pre-installation inspection is:

  1. To make all parties involved aware of any possible obstructions (Surface, Underground and Overhead), any foreseeable safety issues and the difficulty of the proposed setup & tear-down.
  2. Ensure that the proper tent, canopy, or shelter is used, fits the desired location and end-use.
  3. Record the equipment used, installation environment, and a document to be kept for long-term reference.
