Our Mission

Our mission is to provide a better quality of living to the residents of the City of Pittsburgh by increasing safety in the built environment.

Organizational Structure

PLI is organized into 3 distinct divisions: Construction, Operations, and Administrative and Licensing.

  1. The Construction Division is responsible for reviewing and inspecting building permits. Staff duties include reviewing plans and permit applications, inspecting issued building permits and responding to constituent complaints related to issued permits or building without a permit.
  2. The Operations Division is responsible for all property maintenance of existing buildings. Staff duties include responding to constituent requests related to property maintenance and structural deficiencies, condemnations, City-funded demolitions, and license-related inspections.
  3. The Administration and Licensing Division is responsible for the everyday functions of the office. Staff duties include operating the applications counter, answering general inquiries, managing records, finance and accounting, community engagement, social media, technology improvements and administering business licenses.
