Construction Inspection Services

SSC is available for long-term residential and commercial construction projects, or we can be on site within hours of an isolated request. Because we are staffed entirely with engineers and inspectors, we oftentimes are able to recommend design changes in the field and provide signed and sealed design modifications to the city or county if needed.

Once the construction item (e.g., footers) has been approved, a signed and sealed inspection report is left on site and a copy is filed with the respective city or county the very next business day. This assures you that there will be no delay in getting a final approval of your permit by the local building official.
