THE BUILDING INSPECTION PROCESS

Inspection

All building permits require inspections.  The type of inspections required will vary depending on the scope of work.  

  • Inspections can be scheduled by phone or email.

  • All inspection requests must be received before 5 PM of the business day preceding the day of the requested inspection.  For example, an inspection request for Monday must be received before 5 PM on the preceding Friday.  This allows us to adjust for staffing requirements and route assignments.

  • The following information is required when requesting an inspection:
  1. Permit number - permit numbers are typically in the following format xxBDP-00000-xxxxx or xxCNP-00000-xxxxx.
  2. Address of the project
  3. Type of inspection requested
  4. Desired inspection date
  5. Contact name and phone number
