History of VIS

VIS was founded in the late 1990’s by Philip Barragan. What started as a company providing Special Inspection and Consulting evolved into one that focuses on Project Inspection Management services. With experience in Cal State University projects, Community Colleges, schools K-12 (DSA), Hospital (OSHPD) Construction, Private, Industrial and Commercial construction work, we have the knowledge and expertise to work with various jurisdictions.  VIS now has the ability to manage:

  • Special inspection (LOR) management

  • ADA/CASp plan review & inspection

We take pride in our reputation among our former clients and strive to maintain their continued satisfaction with our company, therefore Certified Project Inspectors that represent the VIS name are employees that meet these standards.


our focus

Our goal at VIS is to provide our clients with top-quality projects that meet all state codes, approved plans and specifications, while maintaining our client's set deadlines and budgets. Our focus is to be part of your team while providing you with the best results!

The concept of team is used throughout the construction industry without a clear understanding of what this term really means. John Wooden said that Team Spirit is “a genuine interest in others. It is an eagerness to sacrifice personal interests of glory for the welfare of all.”  With this teamwork attitude in mind, VIS strives to take a proactive approach with our business, addressing concerns before they become issues. Our diligence has proven more efficient and ultimately more beneficial to our clients. VIS understands the importance of communication between all parties for the success of the entire team. Over the years, we have developed a system of tried and tested protocols to support and assist construction projects. We hope to use our successful system, proactive approach and our wide scope of experience for your next project.


We are committed to getting your project completed correctly, on time and within budget!
