9.1.1 Foundation Performance
The structure does not show evidence of excessive foundation movement such as settlement or heave that would affect its integrity or strength.
The deficiency is reduction of the integrity and strength of foundation elements by cracking, yielding, tipping or buckling of the foundation. Visually examine lower level walls, partitions, grade beams, visible footings, pile caps and the like for cracking, yielding, buckling and out-of-level conditions. Report evidence of movement as a deficiency.
