Building Inspection Services

Business Challenge

There are a number of challenges a public agency faces when performing inspections.

  • Large and complex construction projects can place a burden on existing building department staff.  These types of projects consume a great percentage of resources and cause unreasonable delays to the public. 

  • Construction can be so complex in nature and scope that additional expertise is needed to augment staff.

  • Staff outages due to illnesses, vacations, and turnover interrupt the inspection schedule.

  • Low budgets result in poor customer service and a lack of technical expertise.


 

Solution

What is Building Inspection?
Building Inspection is the process of validating the construction of a project conforms to regulatory requirements.  Other related terms include Building Safety Inspections, Code Inspections, Code Compliance, Fire and Life Safety Inspections.  Depending on the building type and occupancy, inspection consists of one or more of the following disciplines: 

  • Accessibility
  • Architectural
  • Electrical
  • Energy   
  • Fire 
  • Life Safety
  • Mechanical
  • Plumbing
  • Structural
