Our Quality Assurance (QA) team is always looking to up its game—including expanding and updating our skills and depth of expertise—in order to better serve our clients. To that end, we’re pleased to announce that Cortney Schwarte has recently earned her ICC Certification by the International Code Council.
Schwarte joined the Xpera team from the general contracting world in 2015. She performed administrative duties on the construction management side of our firm before joining the Quality Assurance team in early-2017. Having gained valuable insight into construction issues from multiple perspectives, she developed a strong interest in performing field inspections.
Under the mentorship of Xpera’s Director of Quality Assurance, John Kyrklund, and working closely with the entire QA inspection team over the past couple of years, Schwarte sharpened her knowledge of industry best practices. In December, she passed the rigorous ICC California Residential Building Inspector Exam, demonstrating her thorough knowledge of the state’s most current building codes and industry standards.
“We are so proud of Cortney’s success in becoming Xpera’s newest certified building inspector,” Kyrklund remarked. “Her enthusiasm to continue with her certifications in multiple disciplines shows there is no limit of her abilities. Cortney is definitely on track to become a great building inspector. Congratulations for a job well done.”
Schwarte will be performing inspections on both detached and multi-family dwellings for Xpera clients up and down the state, from San Diego County to the Bay Area.
When not at the office or on the job site, Schwarte is often in the great outdoors. She enjoys water sport activities, including kayaking and hiking the trails of Southern California.
Congrats on achieving this outstanding milestone and thanks for all you do to help make Xpera’s QA team one of the industry’s best!
