Full-time support services

For more than 20 years, we have partnered with Sovereign Nations and Indigenous communities to provide custom-tailored, full-time plan review and inspection support services.

We are committed to helping Tribal and Sovereign Nations build safe, sustainable infrastructure while respecting tribal sovereignty, and we prioritize cultivating relationships built on mutual trust and respect.

Committed to Sovereign Nation partnerships

Our team of certified inspectors and plan review experts understands the unique building requirements on sovereign lands and our third-party building department services. That’s why we work closely with leadership, community stakeholders, and project teams to deliver efficient, high-quality inspection and plan review services for your most important, ambitious, or pressing projects.

Maintaining cultural integrity through building development services

Beyond our proven track record of successful staffing support and project delivery, you can be assured that Interwest will:

  • Respect tribal sovereignty and allow the Sovereign Nations to steer the project forward.
  • Learn, understand, and follow tribal laws and regulations, including building codes and permitting processes.
  • Communicate clearly and often to maintain an open dialogue with tribal councils and building departments.
  • Prioritize local hiring of qualified tribal citizens when possible.
  • Be sensitive to your cultural values
  • Build trust over time by consistently championing your best interests and conducting ourselves with respect and integrity.
  • Provide transparent data/record keeping and clarify how tribal data will be collected, used and protected.
  • Be flexible and willing to modify typical services to meet your unique needs and priorities.
  • Honor our commitments and follow through reliably.

Project-specific services

Interwest supports small renovations and new construction on Sovereign lands.
