Cities of Lithonia, Chamblee and Norcross Partner with SAFEbuilt, Georgia’s Largest Provider of Building Department Services

The Cities of Lithonia, Chamblee and Norcross have recently contracted with SAFEbuilt Georgia to provide all building department services for their communities. SAFEbuilt Georgia is the state’s leading contract provider of building department services for public agencies. Services include plan reviews, permit applications and inspections for both residential and commercial projects.

Lithonia and Chamblee are both located in Dekalb County. The City of Lithonia formerly utilized building services from the County, while Chamblee used a variety of vendors to facilitate their building department needs. The City of Norcross has expanded their relationship with SAFEbuilt, previously utilizing supplemental services to support an in-house department.

Outsourcing building department services is an option for communities to more closely align revenues with associated costs. SAFEbuilt assumes the expense of staffing and provides a wider range of expertise and professional certifications than most in-house departments can offer.

SAFEbuilt Georgia also partners with 15 other communities throughout the greater Atlanta area to provide a full-service building department. Additionally, SAFEbuilt provides supplemental support services for the new KIA facilities in the City of West Point and the residence hall at Young Harris College.

SAFEbuilt Georgia provide options to government agencies that allow them to provide a continuously superior level of service during peak building periods as well as in low volume times like the current recession. To find out how the SAFEbuilt Georgia team can customize a building department program to benefit your community, contact Jon Walker at, or call (770) 809-4714. Jon is a former city manager and understands the challenges and needs facing today’s public agencies.
