SAFEbuilt Acquires Independent Inspections Limited

by | Dec 14, 2015

We are very excited to announce that we recently finalized on the purchase of a highly regarded building inspection company. Effective May 12, 2015, SAFEbuilt officially acquired Independent Inspections Limited. Independent Inspections is an organization focused on providing complete and professional inspection and plan review services to municipalities.

Founded in 1979 and headquartered in Waukesha, Wisconsin, Independent Inspections serves over 100 public agencies in Wisconsin, Illinois and Florida. With the addition of Wisconsin and Florida, SAFEbuilt now serves over 300 municipalities across eight states. Independent Inspections, Ltd will now operate under the branding of SAFEbuilt in all markets.

Independent Inspections former owner Tom Delacy is excited about the next chapter for the company. “After 23 years of our family ownership, it was important to me to find the right home for Independent Inspections, Ltd., SAFEbuilt is that home,” Delacy said. “They share our commitment to providing high-quality service and exceeding customer expectations. I am excited to watch my former employees thrive with the addition of SAFEbuilt’s strong financial, operational and business development resources, reaching new heights for our clients.”

By expanding our footprint with this milestone transaction and increasing the breadth of resources and insight from different communities across the country, we are better prepared to deliver consistent and market-leading services to present and future clients. Clients on both sides will continue to receive the same high quality that they have come to expect from both SAFEbuilt and Independent Inspections.

“We are very excited about this acquisition as there is great synergy between the two companies,” explained Mike McCurdie, President and CEO. “There is a strong cultural fit and both companies share similar core values, especially the desire and passion for providing exemplary service to our respective clients.”
