31 Dec SAFE, CONTACT-FREE BUILDING INSPECTIONS
For certain, 2020 and the outbreak of Covid-19 has changed the world and especially how the world is doing and conducting business. The spread of COVID-19 and the closing of most businesses has resulted in many sectors of the economy searching to find new solutions for continuing to conduct business. Remote Digitized Inspections are a great example.
In addition to helping inspectors do their jobs during the COVID-19 pandemic, remote, digitized inspections by a 3rd party inspection company can also help save building departments time and money.
Remote digitized inspections are a great way for local governments, boroughs, and townships to still be able to conduct residential and commercial inspections, keeping both their inspectors and their community members’ safe and contact free.
In addition to helping mitigate the spread of Covid-19, there are many benefits to the remote, digitized inspection process and because of these benefits, it is also a process that will become more popular even after the lifting of certain Covid-19 restrictions. Some of these benefits are:
According to the International Code Council, RVI (Remote Virtual Inspection) is a method of inspection that allows the needed inspections to proceed in a timely manner by the owner or contractor located on the jobsite and the inspector or inspection teams performing the inspection remotely. While this practice gained good acceptance and implementation during the weeks and months of COVID-19 social distancing, its advantages are so great that it will likely become a popular and routine tool for the foreseeable future. “The speed of adoption and implementation of technology in all means of use varies by geographic region and depends on a number of factors, including the availability of financial resources and the infrastructure needed to support the technology. Many Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJs) have implemented technology at various levels with good success and have embraced greater reliance on digitization.” Credit: Remote Virtual Inspections (RVI) - ICC
