What would a building inspector be without new buildings to inspect? Here in Kyle, Texas, we wouldn't know. Kyle has been one of the fastest growing communities in the country for most of the past two decades, and that means lots and lots of things needing inspection. We also expect that everything in Kyle begins and ends with quality, and our building inspectors will not settle for anything less than the highest quality from the many projects being constructed in town.


Our building inspectors use their highly developed observation skills and knowledge of all things construction, along with your very practiced powers of persuasion to enforce the City of Kyle's building codes and ensure that compliance is the only option. "Knowledge of all things construction" includes: adopted building codes, City ordinances, and applicable State regulations. Must be familiar with building construction systems including structural, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, gas and fire protection. We'll throw in field enforcement of our zoning and sign ordinances just for good measure.


And because the field work is just never enough, you'll be reviewing construction plans, writing field reports, maintaining official records, and assisting the public in person and over the phone.
