About IBTS

  • Filling staffing gaps
  • Ensuring compliance
  • Increasing capacity, quality, and efficiency
  • Reducing costs
  • Increasing expertise

IBTS has served dozens of MARC member communities for many years. The nonprofit’s team of certified code professionals, inspectors, planners, grant managers, and energy and resiliency experts offers shared services including: planning, grant management, management and consulting, accessibility and fire code, flood plain, energy management and green building, public works, stormwater, resilience and building department services.
