Our Field Staff

Our field staff are highly trained professionals and are full-time, career employees. Each staff member has a thorough knowledge of and has been specifically trained in inspecting homes, multifamily dwellings, commercial buildings and industrial properties. We require all of our field staff to take and pass code certification exams given by the ICC². This is the same prerequisite required by most municipal building authorities for employment as a City Building Inspector. Additionally, many of our inspectors have qualified as an expert witness for the construction industry. Our staff is a point of pride. Eight of our former employees have been hired as building inspectors in various cities throughout the nation. San Marino, Culver City, Chula Vista, Mendocino, Redondo Beach, Riverside, and Kansas City all have employed Boatwright alumnae. This reflects the quality of our employees.
