Building Inspector Admits to Taking Bribes

One of the frequent questionspeople ask me is "How does all of the defective construction that is in ourhome or building get approved by the building inspector?" This question is not as easy to answer as youmight think. First of all, a citybuilding inspector is not intended to be a guarantor that all work is donecorrectly. They are primarily lookingfor health and safety issues. They arenot scrutinizing every aspect of construction. They have to rely on the skill and knowledge of the contractor and thedesign professionals.

Construction way Down in San Diego County

A recent article in the San Diego Union Tribune confirms what most people in the construction industry already know: construction is way down in all sectors of the industry. In fact, 2010 is predicted to be the worst year in over 60 years for residential construction, with Nonresidential construction also way below the level of recent years. Overall permit activity is less than half of what it was in 2007, and a local construction industry research board suggests that construction levels will remain very low for the next several years.
