Helping You Comply With the Code
MNSPECT provides cost-effective Building Official and Supplemental Service Solutions including comprehensive plan review and inspections that assure code compliance, provide efficient service delivery, and exceed the expectations of communities, residents and contractors, with a positive and long-lasting impact on community buildings and budgets.
Certified Building Inspectors
We make every effort to return your reviewed plan as quickly as possible. We will schedule your project for inspections the same or the next business day after you call to request it.
Although the code is a minimum standard, our review and inspection process for code enforcement requires that we utilize checklists, and that we comprehensively evaluate projects for code compliance to minimize the opportunity for code deficiencies during the construction process.
Our team of code professionals meet and/or exceed the requirements established by the MN Department of Labor and Industry. We continually strive to improve our skills and knowledge by receiving additional certifications from the International Code Council, MN Fire Service Certification Board, University of MN Department of Bioproducts and Biosystems Engineering, and others.
When the code is well written, it defines a high-contrast line (black and white). When someone has a situation where they are in a “grey” area of the code, we work to solve problems by consulting references like code commentary, older code versions, newer code versions, or other information. We know we have not seen everything, and are always open to creative solutions, providing they meet the intent of the code.
Don’t take our word for it . . .
“My experience with MNSPECT was positive all around. Being in the field, there are many objectives we need to overcome that are usually unscheduled and many times a surprise. From plan reviews to scheduling to inspections, everyone was very positive and accommodating. MNSPECT provided excellent customer service to me and my company which can easily be lost dealing with larger cities.”
