A Deputy Grading Inspector is required by the City of Los Angeles to ensure that the work performed is in compliance with the current building code.  Duties of the Deputy Grading Inspector typically involve continuously monitoring construction activities onsite to verify the work performed is being conducted per the grading/shoring plans, soils and geology reports, and approval letters. 

At Bay City Geology, all our Deputy Grading Inspectors are experienced Licensed Engineering Geologists or Geotechnical Engineers.  We have developed a professional and respected relationship with many of the City of Los Angeles Building Inspectors.  We know the grading and construction methods that are required and approved by the City of Los Angeles, Department of Building and Safety.  Our Deputy Grading Inspectors will work with your contractors to anticipate and mitigate problems before they happen, reducing the risk associated with improper grading and construction, which can result in costly fines and project delays.
