Building Inspector - Building Safety Inspections
The building inspector usually works for the building and safety department and their job is to verify that the building has been assembled correctly, according to the building blueprints or plans.
As a contractor, I've had plenty of problems with
building inspectors in the past, but you need to remember that their
only interested in your well being. I don't know how many contractors,
superintendents or property owners, view building inspectors as the
enemy, when they're not.
After the building plans have been drawn by a designer or architect, most of them need to be approved by your local building and safety department. Once these plans are approved, you will contact your local building inspector, to inspect the construction or remodeling project, regularly.
For example: You will need to have different phases of the building inspected. Your plumbing, electrical, heating and air-conditioning, wall framing and even your building foundation, need to be inspected before you're allowed to proceed to the next step of the construction process.
