INSPEC, INC. is an independent consulting engineering/ architectural firm. The company was founded in 1973 based upon a need for improved design, construction practices, and maintenance of roofing systems. Since that time, services have been added for pavements and building exteriors. The firm also specializes in waterproofing design, historic building restoration, and outdoor sports facilities.

INSPEC, INC.'s headquarters is located in Minneapolis, Minnesota, with branch offices in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Chicago, Illinois. INSPEC employs over 90 engineers, architects, inspectors, and support staff, which enable the firm to provide services for clients on a local, regional, national and international level. INSPEC has a current Affirmative Action plan. Whenever possible, INSPEC is committed to seeking out targeted businesses as subcontractors or subconsultants. Performance over the years has enabled the firm to acquire and maintain professional liability insurance.

A variety of services are offered within each division. These services include:


Computerized Management Programs


Failure Investigations





Survey and Evaluation


Construction Observation and Administration


Infrared Surveys


On-site and Laboratory Testing

INSPEC has been the recipient of many significant awards, including:


Firm of the Year Award from the Consulting Engineers Council of Minnesota (CEC/M).


First place in the Documentation Competition for the University of Minnesota, Duluth Life Science Greenhouse, from the Roofing Consultants Institute (RCI).


Outstanding Track Facility Award for New Ulm High School from United States Tennis Court & Track Builders Association (USTC & TBA).


Grand Award from the Consulting Engineers Council of Minnesota (CEC/M), for INSPEC's wall, window and door management program (University of Minnesota Facility Management Program).

One of INSPEC's goals is to maximize opportunities for growth of employees in their chosen careers. This is realized in part through employee membership in approximately 30 different organizations. Some of these organizations are the American Consulting Engineers Council (ACEC), American Institute of Architects (AIA), American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM), National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA), Construction Specifications Institute (CSI), Roofing Consultants Institute (RCI), and the United States Tennis Court & Track Builders Association (USTC&TBA). By maintaining active roles in these organizations, a considerable amount of information is obtained which has benefited INSPEC's clients.

Contributions to community service are supported by participation in SEE (Students Engaged in Engineering) through the Consulting Engineers Council; Youth Architecture through the American Institute of Architects; Explorer Posts for youths interested in architecture and construction careers through the Construction Specification Institute; Toys for Tots; and the United Way.

Some of INSPEC's valued clients include the University of Minnesota, Minnesota State Colleges and Universities, Northwest Airlines, United States Postal Service, SUPERVALU, Department of the Navy, and Northern States Power.
