S.F. Workshop for Builders, Owners
San Francisco's Department of Building Inspection is hosting several free workshops for the public at an all-day summit in San Francisco.
Dubbed Meet the DBI Pros, the event offers workshops for architects and builders as well as homeowners interested in the basics of permits and resources. Workshop topics include how to get a permit; condo conversion; lead paint laws and enforcement; seismic safety; disability access; landlord-tenant responsibilities; and how high-rises are changing the San Francisco skyline. There will be a special afternoon panel on the department's increasingly used peer review process, which taps engineering experts in the Bay Area to help evaluate complex building projects. Bring your own lunch, or buy from the concession at the event.
The summit is 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Oct. 25 at Bill Graham Civic Auditorium. Registration is required. The deadline to register is Oct. 6.
