The Vital Role of THE APR Inspector Team

Since 2000, Architectural Plan Review (APR) has been a trusted partner for master-planned developers and builders, contributing to the success of award-winning communities and ensuring the integrity of community design guidelines. At APR, we understand the importance of attention to detail and follow-through in maintaining the value and aesthetic appeal of communities throughout the development process and beyond.

Design Guidelines serve as the blueprint for community aesthetics, dictating everything from home styles to landscaping materials. It’s APR’s responsibility to ensure that what’s approved on paper is faithfully executed on the ground. This is where our team of skilled inspectors plays a pivotal role, and why we invest so much time and energy in training them.

Among our dedicated inspectors, Gary Young stands out for his passion for quality and commitment to learning. Working closely with builders across various communities, Gary ensures compliance with design guidelines while embracing the opportunity to learn and grow in the ever-evolving field of home construction. He shoulders a lot of responsibility, and he has become the go-to team member for the other inspectors. Gary also values the flexibility that the inspector role offers, allowing him to adapt to the unique requirements of each project and contribute to the creation of vibrant, master-planned communities.

Key to the success of our inspectors is a thorough understanding of design guidelines and a commitment to staying organized amidst the intricacies of their work.

But beyond the technical aspects of their job, our inspectors take immense pride in their work. They understand that their efforts contribute to the creation of beautiful neighborhoods that residents can take pride in. Driving through a well-maintained community, seeing the streetscape come to life, is a testament to their dedication and hard work.

Inspectors like Mike and Gary play a vital role in ensuring the success and sustainability of master-planned communities. Their attention to detail, commitment to quality, and passion for their work not only uphold design guidelines but also contribute to the overall aesthetic appeal and value of the communities they serve. As our “boots on the ground,” they embody the values of APR, ensuring that what’s approved is indeed what gets built, and that communities thrive for generations to come.
