SUPERVISION RECEIVED AND EXERCISED
Receives general supervision (Building Inspector I) or general direction (Building Inspector II) from assigned supervisory or management personnel. Exercises no direct supervision over staff.
Building Inspector I: This is the entry-level classification in the Building Inspector series. Initially under close supervision, incumbents with basic experience learn City systems, operations, practices, and procedures while performing the more routine building inspection work. Assignments at this level vary based upon the specific knowledge base and skillset related to the various aspects of building systems inspection and areas of assignment broaden as incumbents gain experience with the additional aspects of building inspection work. Positions at this level usually perform most of the duties required of the positions at the II-level but are not expected to function at the same skill level and usually exercise less independent discretion and judgment in matters related to work procedures and methods.
Building Inspector II: This is the journey-level classification in the Building Inspector series. Incumbents work under general direction from assigned supervisory or managerial personnel and exercise a high level of discretion and independent judgment in performing the full range of routine to complex inspections. Work is normally reviewed upon completion and for overall results. This class is distinguished from that of Supervising Building Inspector in that the latter is the first level supervisor with responsibility to plan, supervise, and evaluate the work of professional and technical building inspection personnel.
Positions in the Building Inspector class series are flexibly staffed and positions at the II-level are normally filled by advancement from the I-level after gaining the knowledge, skill, and experience which meet the qualifications for and after demonstrating the ability to perform the work of the higher-level class.
