Construction Inspections

A Superior Reputation for Timely, Accurate Reporting

Our staff is experienced in professional interaction with builders and contractors; we deliver unbiased and objective reports to meet all construction inspection needs.

A construction inspection is a “snapshot” in time, performed during various stages of construction to verify that the work being performed under the building permit meets the Codes as adopted by the State, City, or Local government.

IBTS responds to all types of needs, including emergencies, disaster recovery, priority building, or long-term inspections. We provide services to the government to help augment existing resources, and also perform inspections of construction components at the factory level on behalf of the government. Our services also include plan/peer reviews and field inspections for homes, buildings, and structures nationwide.

Our fully qualified staff have all the necessary inspector, plans examiner, and code official certifications in building, electrical, fire safety, mechanical, and plumbing. We enjoy a superior reputation for timely, accurate reporting and a unique “team approach” to independent third party oversight.
