Loveland, CO, United States, 2010/01/13 - SAFEbuilt, one of the nation’s leading contract providers of building department services for public agencies, is adding an office in Rockwall, Texas. Dale Jackson, formerly with BCCS/C&C Engineering, will be heading up the SAFEbuilt Texas office.
“I’m excited to match my understanding of the climate in Texas with SAFEbuilt’s proven business model,” says Jackson. “SAFEbuilt doesn’t take a ‘one size fits all’ approach. We offer expert building department resources that are tailored to meet individual community needs.”
Jackson, a native Texan, has over 30 years of experience in the building industry, serving as a building official for more than twenty of those years. His expertise includes numerous Texas Code certifications and International Code Council (ICC) certifications as well as in-depth local knowledge of Texas.
SAFEbuilt provides contract full-service building department services, building code plan reviews, complete project support and building code inspections for cities, towns, counties and state agencies. Government agencies often look to contract all or part of the building department function because fixed costs can be converted to variable costs. A contract between a government agency and a public company is often referred to as a public-private partnership.
Public-private partnerships offer an alternative to selective or across-the-board service cuts and raised fees. Time and again, they have been shown to be a fiscally prudent choice for delivery of a myriad of public services. The current economic climate has only made the consideration more urgent.
SAFEbuilt’s corporate office is in Loveland, Colorado, with operations throughout Colorado, Georgia, Florida, Louisiana, Washington, Arizona, Michigan and the Carolinas and has more than 70 employees. In 2008, SAFEbuilt (SAFEbuilt.com) supported over $1.5 billion in residential and commercial building valuations, performed 5,125 plan reviews and approximately 85,000 inspections.
