Construction Inspections & Materials Testing

ALL municipalities require special construction inspections of commercial buildings of elements that are critical to the safety of the structure. These required special inspections are in addition to those performed by the Building Code Official.

Isett’s Construction Inspections and Materials Testing Department has successfully assisted many of our region’s major construction projects.  Our team of Certified International Code Council (ICC) and American Concrete Institute (ACI) inspectors are prepared to manage YOUR projects’ testing and inspection needs.  We will meet your schedule and provide results to keep your project moving.  Consider the VALUE of having a qualified, knowledgeable Isett inspector at your site.
