“I had the pleasure of working with Scott Ward for over 10 years as Chief Building Official for the City of Healdsburg, both in my position as a Planning Commissioner and an architect. I found Scott to be very knowledgeable about the building codes as well as practical in their application. He was one of the few building officials that would always look for a way to make things work within the framework of the code. Additionally, he would make practical suggestions that often would simplify the project and save money. He would make recommendations on how to cutting through the red tape in his and other departments. I am sure he brings this same skill set to the private sector and can unequivocally recommend him for code consulting, project processing or management. “

 “We have significantly benefited from Scott's expertise and professionalism when either building our new home, considering a retail property purchase or securing a lot-line adjustment. None of these important decisions and ensuing transactions would have been handled as favorably or as smoothly without Scott's experience and wisdom. He is well versed in city planning, building codes, and real estate practices, and is most adept in readily applying these elements and principles to any scenario while deftly navigating the design and approval process. We consider Scott essential to our building and property acquisition needs.”

“I have known and worked with Scott Ward for over a decade in both my capacity as a member and 3-term chair of the Healdsburg Planning Commission and more recently as a private client. During his tenure as building official, I was continually impressed with his command of all aspects of building and safety, whether adjudicating small or large projects, moving them toward completion that often involved solving complex problems to the satisfaction of both the City and the client. 

In my most recent dealings getting a project through the final permit stages in the County of Mendocino I saw the same degree of acumen and finesse, along with a more than fair budgeting of time. Our project was in fact approved in record time, with considerable savings along the way as a result of his ongoing advice with to respect sub-contractors.
