When a property owner obtains the necessary permit(s) to begin work, it also means that the Building Department now has been provided the appropriate documents to perform an inspection of the permitted construction project. This inspection process ensures that acceptable codes and standards are met and appropriate materials are used, and if all conditions are approved the inspection process culminates with the issuance of a Certificate of Occupancy.
Depending on the scope of work being performed and the type of building, you may have one or more inspections. For buildings including single-family dwellings and duplexes, specialty inspectors will inspect the different aspects of the construction or improvement such as structure, plumbing, electrical, HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning), and fire suppression and alarm systems.
For more information, please call the Building Department at (248) 796-4100.
