As the field of building and home inspection, investigation, and consultation grew over the years, it became evident that an organization was needed to establish the highest standards for this industry and to verify the qualifications of individuals offering these services.
We believed professional engineers and registered architects were uniquely qualified to provide this service. Thus, in 1989, the National Academy of Building Inspection Engineers was established.
Much has changed in the building inspection engineering industry over the last decade. Today, many State Boards of Registration for Professional Engineers and Land Surveyors have deemed that the inspection and evaluation of buildings regarding their structural, electrical, and mechanical systems for proper design, integrity, or capacity, constitutes the practice of engineering. Thus, the need for a professional organization to protect the public with the highest qualifications and standards possible is even more relevant today.
We are proud to have members in all major metropolitan areas and most states. We speak for home and building inspection engineers in every state through monitoring of legislation, court cases and government activity. We interface with affiliated real estate associations and commissions, state engineering boards and other standard setting organizations.
