Building Official Reduces Town’s Risk

Mark Eshpeter is a registered building official who worked for the Town of Qualicum Beach, BC for years. He first started conducting inspections on his tablet in 2009 as part of a pilot project. It’s been part of his daily life ever since.

…it is important to know, for sure, that critical inspection processes are being done on time, documented in writing, and verified with digitally embedded photographic proof of the deficiency and corrective action.Mark Eshpeter, Building Official

In addition to helping him conduct methodical, consistent inspections, Mark appreciates the ability to use his tablet to take photos and attach them his inspection records right inside the building inspection software. “This greatly reduces the likelihood of uncertainties after construction with the contractors and home owners,” he explained.

In fact, the results were such an improvement that the Town of Qualicum Beach was featured in a case study by Blackberry.
