DSA Project Inspector

For over 30 years, Sandy Pringle Associates (SPA) has been recognized as a first class DSA Inspection firm located in Torrance, California. SPA has provided Project Inspector (formerly Inspector of Record (IOR)) services in the Southern California area on over 500 school projects including many new constructions, renovations, additions and other program-wide projects.

Project Close-out & Certification

Even before the project “officially” started construction, SPA was reviewing the documents and asking questions in order to gain a better understanding of the scope and background of the project. During construction, I found SPA to be very proactive, diligent and fair in his documentation, responsive, considerate of the client and others, and very much a team player.

It is also crucial to maintain complete and accurate records so that when required by the project team, the Project Inspector can help verify the extent and cause of any delays that occur. This streamlines the Project Closeout process from the start of the project. This help control the cost for the project saving the District’s schedule and budget.

CASp Inspection (Certified Access Specialist Program)

The Certified Access Specialist (CASp) program was created by Senate Bill 262 (Chapter 872, 2003) and is designed to meet the public’s need for experienced, trained, and tested individuals who can inspect buildings and sites for compliance with applicable state and federal construction-related accessibility standards.

Having a business or property reviewed by a CASP Inspector shows that you care about ensuring equal access for all of your customers, and that you intend to comply with all accessibility standards. The good-faith effort of hiring a CASp Inspector will lessen your liability and provide certain legal benefits if an accessibility claim is filed.

We have qualified CASp Inspectors whose goal is to provide ADA compliance with a proactive approach toward public accessibility. We provide site evaluations, inspections and issue certified reports. This helps minimize the client’s exposure to ADA lawsuits.
