Field Office

The Field Office provides construction project management, construction inspection and surveying for City, State and Federally funded infrastructure projects and private infrastructure construction in Winston-Salem and Forsyth County. 

The Construction Inspection staff within the Field Office conducts inspection services on infrastructure projects. Construction Inspectors also work across the entire Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Utilities service area inspecting water and sewer line construction for capital improvements and within development projects that are accepted for maintenance into the public system. 

The Surveying staff within the Field Office conducts preliminary survey and construction stakeout services for infrastructure projects. Surveying staff also assists other departments within the City by reviewing plats, staking right-of-way or easement limits and other services as requested. 

All infrastructure development within the City inspected by the Field Office must conform to the latest edition of the City of Winston-Salem’s Infrastructure Development Standards. All water and sewer construction within the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Utilities service must conform to the latest edition of the Technical Specifications and Detail Drawings for Water Line and Sanitary Sewer Line Construction. Both of these documents along with other helpful resources for construction inspected by the Field Office can be found on the Publications page.
