Successful Track Record
We hire the very best talent to ensure code compliance and optimum customer service for our clients. Our references will confirm that VCA is consistently responsive, dedicated, and committed to providing the level of customer service your community expects and deserves.

Building and Fire Plan Review
At VCA we hire Licensed Structural and Professional Engineers and ICC Certified Plans Examiners. Our capabilities are diverse, meaning no structure is too large or complex. Our experience includes all aspects of plan review such as architectural, structural, mechanical, plumbing, electrical, fire, Title 24 energy, ADA, seismic, flood and liquefaction, cannabis, solar, soils, soft-story, geotechnical, and CalGreen, to name a few. Structures include residential, commercial, industrial, and government projects.

Staff Augmentation
VCA provides as-needed staffing services to multiple jurisdictions with a strong pipeline of ICC certified on-call field staff for building department management, inspection, permitting, code enforcement, and counter plan check services. In addition we offer retained search services for hard-to-find technical positions such as city engineers and senior staff positions. In addition, VCA employs CASp experts for ADA site inspection and plan check.

Planning Services
Your city deserves the best and brightest to assist with short- and long-range project management including general plans, updates, land use entitlements, historical preservation, code compliance, zoning, track maps, plan check, demographics, counter assistance and more. Our planners range from former city planners, principal and senior planners to associate planners and support staff. They’re dedicated, knowledgeable, and experienced regarding city needs, preparing reports, and presenting to committees, commissions, and city councils.

Code Resources
VCA continually updates an extensive library of all applicable building codes and reference materials. We make sure our employees have the resources needed to serve our clients. Our clients know they can depend upon VCA and its employees as being well-trained and possess the most current reference materials to ensure code compliance and uphold life-safety standards.

VCA has long-standing relationships with California jurisdictions. We’re proud of our affiliation with each and we’re happy to provide any number of references regarding plan check, staff augmentation, planning, and other services and projects.
