​​​Inspections 

             

Our Inspections Team checks to see that construction work in the field is built according to approved plans with respect to N.C. Building Code. More than 100 inspector code officials cover all construction in Mecklenburg County's 524 square miles. ​ ​Our inspections process is nearly paperless. Code officials log their results electronically from the field and inspection results, along with inspector notes, are available instantly online.
