The Inspections Section of the Building Development Division is the primary field enforcement agency for the Development Services Department for all permitted construction activity on private property and public property where the construction is outside of the public right-of-way. Inspections Section’s goals and objectives reflect those of the Development Services Division, including ensuring that buildings, structures and building service equipment are constructed or installed according to the minimum standards set forth in the building-related codes adopted by San Antonio.

The Inspections Section is managed by two Development Services Managers: Mr. Patrick Poloskey, who oversees the inspections program for one-and two-family dwellings and the investigations program and Mr. Michael Constantino who oversees the inspections program for commercial/industrial structures and the sign permit review and inspections program. Under their leadership the Inspections Section consists of the Investigations Team, Multi-Discipline Team, Building Team, Electrical Team, Mechanical Team, Plumbing Team and Sign Team (see organization chart). The majority of required inspections are performed in response to requests for inspections related to building-related code permits. Other inspections and investigations are performed on a random, key point inspection basis or in response to reports of complaints. As part of the overall development process, building-related code inspections are performed on various aspects of building construction including foundation, framing, electrical, mechanical and plumbing and are performed by the following teams:

Building Inspections Team
Combination Inspections Team
Electrical Inspections Team
Mechanical Inspections Team
Plumbing Inspections Team
Sign Review and Inspections Team

Information bulletins have been developed and are online to assist you with your information requests and there to help you in understanding the development process. For a complete list of information bulletins, click here.

The Inspections Section also performs investigations of reported violations of the building-related codes and of the Unified Development Code. Many of these investigations pertain to allegations that someone is building without the required permits, is in violation of zoning land use regulations or has occupied a building without the required certificate of occupancy.

All new inspectors and supervisors in the Inspections Section are required to be nationally certified in their discipline within a specific period of time.
