Our Mega-Multifamily Inspections Team is a new service stream that focuses on the specialized needs of our mega and multifamily customers.
This team was designed in response to changes in the local design and construction environment, including increased large, or mega, projects on the drawing boards and under construction in and around Charlotte, a multifamily construction boom in the region, and state building codes that are increasingly more specialized.
To serve our customers better, Code Enforcement will realign its inspections teams over the next two years. This begins with the Mega-Multifamily inspections Team, which will focus on our most complex projects, including mid- or high-rise multifamily projects. This new service stream launched June 29, 2015.
Mega-Multifamily inspectors will stay with a project from the first inspection to the final. They'll be more available to contractors and owner-developers, because their sole focus will be mega and multifamily projects.
Future plans include reorganizing the North and South Inspections teams into Residential and Non-Mega Commercial teams.
We know Mega-Multifamily Inspections will have immediate benefits for customers in the program:
This is a targeted inspections resource for our customers' most complex projects.
Individualized attention from inspectors will increase consistency.
This model more closely aligns with the development trend in the area.
Individualized attention will mean improved communication with the owner's team over the course of the project.
Specialized teams may be able to expedite the hiring and training process -- we will have more inspectors available to serve you.
These permit structure templates are spreadsheets provided to assist our customers in the management and structuring of permits and inspections for large, multi-level projects that, by their design and nature, pose difficulties in the closeout and delivery of the project to the end client.Large, complex projects bring additional considerations as well as the possibility of "phased occupancy" issued that can cause a simple Certificate of Occupancy to de delayed. The use of these worksheets is not required, but encouraged for all customers using Mega-Multifamily Inspections, as this tool can often help to avoid expensive delays and changes.To use this template, download the linked Excel document to your computer. Important: Before beginning to work with the template, be sure to select your project type from the tabs at the bottom -- R1/High, R2/High, R2/Podium or R2/Wrap.
