The Division also plan checks grading and erosion control plans. Inspections also occur on grading and erosion control for commercial buildings, industrial buildings and single family dwellings. Field inspections are performed on all new construction, additions, structural alterations and demolitions for compliance to all structural, fire, safety, health safety and life safety requirements.
