The Building Inspection Office Assists Builders

When you have found a plot or an apartment that suits you, it is time to start building or renovating. Firstly, you need to hire a master planner and then contact the building inspection office to schedule a negotiation.

The building inspection office provides advice for builders throughout the whole building process. The building inspection office cooperates with the land surveying division in order to create a pleasant and safe living environment for all the inhabitants in Jakobstad.
