Employment of construction and building inspectors is projected to grow 8 percent from 2014 to 2024, about as fast as the average for all occupations, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Demand will be strongest in government and in firms specializing in architectural, engineering, and related services. As the concern for public safety continues to rise, the demand for inspectors should grow, even if construction activity does not increase. The level of new construction fluctuates with the economy, but maintenance and renovation continue during the downswings, so inspectors will have better job prospects than others in the construction industry. The DOL reports that opportunities will also increase for inspectors in niche fields such as green and sustainable design projects. New technology, such as building information modeling (BIM), is also easing the building-plans review process. As a result, more time and resources can be invested in building and construction inspections.
