Multi-discipline engineering firm Barry Isett & Associates, Inc., headquartered in Allentown with seven other locations across eastern and central Pennsylvania, has purchased the assets of CodeMaster Inspection Services of the Lehigh Valley.
The acquisition adds seven full-time employees and one part-time employee to Isett’s Code Service Department, as well as 17 client municipalities that previously relied upon CodeMaster for code, zoning, permitting and related services.
“We told existing CodeMaster clients that a few differences will be the logo on the inspector’s vehicles and apparel, and the letterhead of the documents we send them,” said Matt Walter, MCP, CFM, Isett’s Code Services department head. “Otherwise, the only change they should see is the increase in the depth and expertise of the staff serving their community.” CodeMaster staff members and clients transitioned to Isett effective April 1. “The newly acquired staff has largely remained with their previous municipalities to maintain continuity throughout the transition,” Walter said.
Along with the decades of technical experience and professionalism of the CodeMaster staff, Isett acquired the former company’s custom computer program called CodeTracker, which is permit-management, inspection-scheduling and accounting software. Isett personnel are utilizing the software for the former CodeMaster clients and hope to integrate it department-wide by the end of 2020.
