Building Inspection Checklist

Building inspectors are needed in order for municipalities to ensure that buildings and building alterations are compliant with national and state building codes as well as local zoning and land use bylaws. Along with the buildings themselves, essential systems such as electrical, heating/cooling, and plumbing are inspected in both commercial and residential sectors to identify any concerns that could impact either occupants or the general public.

 

What are the requirements of a building inspection checklist?

The International Code Council (ICC) and the Certified Commercial Property Inspectors Association (CCPIA) have guidelines on what items or components should be reviewed as part of a formal building inspection. A building inspection template helps to ensure that all requirements for building, electrical, plumbing, mechanical, and specialty codes are being met by outlining specific items. Building, electrical, plumbing, mechanical, or other specialty inspectors can utilize this checklist while on-site to complete detailed inspections of both residential and commercial properties.

 

Why use a building inspection checklist app?

A mobile data collection and workflow automation platform streamlines the building inspection process and utilizes tools that all inspectors already have in their pockets to enable them to work more efficiently and reduce the potential for lost data. From checklist items to the addition of notes and photos, everything can be done at the swipe of a screen using the inspector’s regular smartphone. Paper inspection sheets can be cumbersome on job sites — a building inspection checklist app eliminates the hassle of paper processes and enables the instant sharing of building inspection records.

In addition, all reports are cloud-based and can be accessed at any time on multiple devices. If an inspector’s smartphone is lost or damaged, all of their inspection data is saved and can be accessed by signing in on a new device. Plus, all of the information collected can be transformed easily into formal reports that can be shared with building owners, clients, or other interested parties.
