  • Every attempt will be made to perform inspections on the next regular inspection day; however, inspection requests will be processed on a first come, first serve basis. If an inspection request needs to be altered due to compliance with safety protocols, inspector’s schedule, or time constraints a phone call will be returned to the contact person. Otherwise, there will be no confirmation call returned and the inspection will be scheduled as requested.
  • Requests must be made by 7:00 am the day of the inspection. Any inspections requested after 7:00am will automatically be considered for another inspection day.
  • Re-inspections resulting from no-shows or failed prior inspection will be charged a re-inspection fee of $75.00.
  • A responsible party shall be on site during the inspection and have the following paperwork on site:
    • Building approved plan set
    • Any additional documents issued with the plan sets (i.e. structural calculations, geotechnical reports, etc.)
    • The job card issued with the building permit
