The Physical Property Department handles a variety of issues pertaining to code compliance, permits and safety concerns. Black, who was just promoted to department manager, will talk about the duties of building inspectors, which include being involved in all building processes, whether new construction or repairs for both interior and exterior. Building inspectors also oversee the processing of all building permits, prepare specifications, and assist in processing bid packets and contracts for special Mutual projects.
Black currently holds an ICC California Building Inspector License and a C-36 Plumbing License issued by the California Licensing State Board. His tenure with the GRF began over 28 years ago in January 1993. At that time, he was hired as a plumber in the Service Maintenance Department. Although he was one of six plumbers on staff, he was able to assist the team in other maintenance aspects, including electrical, carpentry, concrete and street repair.
In 2003, there was an opportunity for advancement in the Physical Property Department, which he applied for and was promoted to physical property inspector.
