The Hanover County Building Inspector’s Office and all building safety professionals work collaboratively with the construction community to ensure that structures are safe, sustainable and efficient for our residents and visitors.
Inspectors, permit technicians, plan reviewers and other code officials come from a variety of backgrounds. Contractors and tradesmen, architects, engineers, administrative professionals, and fire and law enforcement often find transitioning to the building safety industry to be a rewarding career path.
Regardless of your experience level, if you value public service, community safety and the opportunity for continuous learning and development, a job in the building safety industry may be an outstanding fit for you. According to a National Institute of Building Science survey conducted in 2014, the building safety industry expects to lose as much as 80% of its workforce over a 15-year period, so building safety professionals will be in high demand.
