Request for Expressions of Interest
Building Inspection for Bowen Island Municipality

Due to the impending retirement of the Building Inspector in the Spring of 2011, Bowen Island Municipality is seeking Expressions of Interest from qualified individuals who are interested in serving as a part-time Building Inspector.

As Building Inspector, you will perform inspections, regulatory, and enforcement work related to building construction and current trade practices. At the present time, and in the foreseeable future, it is anticipated that there will be a requirement for two days work per week. The Building Inspector must also have:

• the ability to read plans & specifications;
• possession of a Carpentry TQ and/or Diploma in Building Technology or education & experience in a related field;
• effective communication skills, both orally and in writing; and
• possession of a valid BC driver’s license and the ability to provide their own transportation in return for reimbursement according to BIM’s travel policy.

Prior experience in a municipal inspector’s role and BC Building Officials Association certification would be considered an asset. Expressions of Interest in this position should identify the applicant’s qualifications and whether he/she seeks to provide this service as a contractor or part-time municipal staff along with compensation expectations.

Specific questions related to this request may be addressed to Hap Stelling, MCIP, Director of Planning for BIM at hstelling@bimbc.ca or 604-947-4255. The Municipality would like to establish a transition process to ensure that Building Inspection services are delivered seamlessly and therefore the deadline for receipt of the Expressions of Interest is the close of business on December 15, 2010.

Thank you for your interest in Bowen Island Municipality.
