Building Inspections

Scheduling a Building Inspection


Instructions for requesting inspections are located on the back of your building permit on the inspection record card, which lists the required inspection areas. Work shall not be concealed prior to obtaining an inspection. Be certain to obtain all inspections necessary to your project, listed on the inspection record card.
Request Inspection-03

To schedule a building inspection, send your request through our online Inspection Request Form. If you don't have access to the internet, please call the Inspection Request Line at 303-234-5933. At this time, we have suspended requests for the two-hour window for inspections. Please use only ONE method of requesting an inspection. Calling and submitting requests online is delaying inspectors from getting in the field.

Canceling a Building Inspection

Inspection cancellations may be submitted through our online Inspection Cancellation Form. Cancellation requests must be received by 8:00 a.m. on the day of the scheduled inspection. Any request received after this time will be subject to a $60 re-inspection fee. Inspections are not automatically rescheduled.

Guidelines

  • Inspections are required in some form for all building permits.  The inspection record posted on the job will have a list of required inspections.  This is a general record so only inspections that would apply to your specific project would be required.
  • Inspections requested prior to 11:59 pm on that business day will be performed the following business day. Be sure to anticipate the need for inspections to prevent delays.
  • If a requested inspection cannot be performed due to inclement weather, the contractor and/or property owner are responsible for canceling the requested inspection no later than 8 a.m. on the day of inspection. If an inspector arrives to perform a requested inspection that cannot be conducted and has not been canceled, a re-inspection fee of $60 will be assessed and will be required to be paid prior to the next inspection.
  • Inspections will not be performed on subcontracted work done by an unlicensed subcontractor.  Discovery of unlicensed contractors may result in work stoppages and a municipal summons.
  • Final inspections are the last step in the inspection process, and approval of the final inspections is your confirmation that the work has been satisfactorily completed according to the building code.

Please Note: Prior to the issuance of a Certificate of Occupancy or Completion, all requirements of the Planning, Engineering, Fire and Health Departments are required to be met.
