Construction Inspection

Construction Inspection Information
Work for which a permit is required shall be inspected by the city per the  Administrative Code Section 109. Items listed on the front side of your job-site Inspection Card are intended as a guide to help you understand what work must be inspected and in what order. Bear in mind, though, that it would be impractical to have an exhaustive list of possible inspection items for all types of projects. If there is any doubt about whether an inspection is required, please ask the Building Division.

Construction Inspection
Special Inspections
In addition to the city inspections, continuous or periodic Special Inspections are required per AC Section 109.3.9 and CBC Sections1704. The special inspector must be pre-qualified by the Building Official and registered with the city before performing any inspection in this jurisdiction. Where Structural Observation by the architect or engineer of record is required, it is the permittee’s responsibility to notify the architect or engineer at proper stages of construction. Inspections by a special inspector or by an architect or engineer are in addition to, not in place of, inspections required by the Building Division.
