PowerHouse Electrical Services

” Inspected has brought a lot of
value to our team. Inspected has
helped us become more efficient
with our inspections as installs
are completed and made the
process extremely smooth and
quick. Our contractors are happy
as speeding up this process gives
them more time to move on to
their next jobs, and earn more as
a result, without having to spend
the whole day in one location,
waiting for an inspector to
arrive!”

Campaign Scope

Scope of work

PowerHouse has been using Inspected’s private inspection services since July 2021. Inspected performs their generator inspections as installs are completed, allowing their contractors to close out permits the same day.

User Group

Inspected’s Private Provider services can help Electrical, HVAC, Plumbing, Roofing, and other contractors.

Campaign Purpose

Inspections with Inspected increases efficiencies and reduce costs, helping contractors achieve successful inspections and respond to the needs of customers, and closeout permits faster.

Challenges

PowerHouse was struggling to complete the permitting and inspection process in a reasonable time frame due to lengthy plan review cycles, municipal delays, and scheduling inspections with homeowners. This prolongs project completion and delays payments upon project close-out.

It was difficult to track progress as a backlog of permits and inspections grew. It was also hindering the company’s ability to monitor quality control.

Having to wait on extended plan review times with municipalities and schedule inspections with homeowners and inspectors sometimes after install had become inefficient for a growing company.

Solutions

Inspected is helping PowerHouse innovate by introducing Inspected Services and Same Day Inspections to their projects.

Easy 5 Steps process to help PowerHouse achieve this goal:

1) Submit Inspected’s notice to the building official as a private provider with their permit application.

2) Schedule their inspection time with Inspected’s easy-to-use portal.

3) Complete their inspection while their installation crews are still on the job site.

4) Submit the Inspection report to the city.

5) Inspections are completed the same day as installs and permits can be closed out faster.

Easy 5 steps process of using Inspected for plan review in addition to inspections

1) Upload all the plans, manual, and documents to the permit record in the easy-to-use portal

2) Schedule their inspection time with Inspected’s easy-to-use portal.

3) Inspected plan review team will collaborate and ensure code compliance.

4) When the plan review is complete, all the documents, will be in the portal, stamped, and prepared for submittal.

5) The contractor’s permitting team submits the Application and all required documents from the portal to the municipality.
