MARK FRIEDMAN

GENERAL OVERVIEW

Looking for a Building Code Specialist? Are you looking for a “seasoned building inspector?” Or, are you looking for someone with a heavily weighted construction back round relevant to dispute resolution?

Mark Friedman has over 29 years of construction related experience, ranging from being a Maintenance Supervisor for over 23 homeowner associations, to a licensed General Contractor, to becoming a certified building inspector with over 15 years of municipal building inspection experience. He has over 20 years of classroom teaching experience ranging from helping applicants become licensed contractors to teaching building codes at Santa Rosa Junior College, located in Santa Rosa, California.

I have over 24 years of municipal building code experience which includes residential and commercial plan check and building inspection experience.

During my career, I was a building code instructor at the local junior college as well maintained my certifications by attending ICC sponsored training seminars to keep up to date with all phases on construction inspection.
