All permitted work requires an inspection.

The permit holder is responsible for calling the Building Inspection Services Department to schedule inspections. If the inspector must get into a home, the contractor or adult homeowner must be present.

Inspections must be scheduled in advance. Two business days in advance is typically required.

Approved (stamped) plans and permit and inspection cards (PDF) are required on job sites to conduct inspections.
