Construct

With your contractors hired and building permits issued, you are ready to start construction on your property. As construction proceeds, it is very important to keep in contact with your local Building and Safety office to request periodic inspections as the work progresses.

Inspections

A very important component of ensuring that your project meets building code and other requirements is to make sure that periodic inspections by Building and Safety are performed throughout the construction of the project. At the start of the project, the permit will outline the construction steps that require inspection. To help the work proceed correctly, additional inspections will also be made as necessary.

It is the building permit’s holder's responsibility (the property owner, or in most cases, the licensed general contractor) to request periodic inspections. To request an inspection, the permit holder must contact the local Building and Safety office to request an inspection the next day. On the day of the inspection, the permit holder is asked to call the local Building and Safety office to determine a time of inspection that is convenient for both the permit holder and the inspector to meet at the site.
