Buildings and Inspections Departments exist for the purpose of protecting the public’s health, safety, and general welfare. These departments accomplish this by ensuring compliance with adopted codes that regulate items such as:

  • Structural strength
  • Stability
  • Sanitation
  • Lighting
  • Ventilation
  • Fire safety and other hazards associated with construction, alteration, removal, demolition, use or occupancy of buildings, structures, or property

These departments also provide the community with quality inspections of potential code and ordinance violations, maximizing the number of properties and structures that are in compliance with adopted standards, and improving the safety and appearance of properties and buildings.

Buildings and Inspections Departments are also involved with the daily maintenance, inspection, and upkeep of properties. They usually include building inspectors, plumbing, electrical or mechanical inspectors, or other specialty-focused inspector who may inspect structures at different stages of completion. GIS work order applications can be used to help organize and manage the many tasks involved.

A common need for for many departments is the centralization of existing GIS data and obtaining easier methods to access that data. Another key element is the development of a centralized geodatabase for all GIS data. If not already implemented, a potential solution is the ArcGIS Enterprise. Among many things, using ArcGIS Enterprise will reduce inefficient workflows.
