Inspection Services

Welcome to Inspection Services. This division performs construction inspections at specified progress benchmarks on a wide variety of commercial, industrial, and residential structures.  These inspections focus on structural components, life safety elements, energy conservation, disabled accessibility, and electrical, plumbing, and mechanical systems.  The purpose of these inspections is to ensure that contractors and owner-builders construct their projects in a manner consistent with the approved construction plans and state adopted codes and standards.

The division staff provides information on adopted code requirements and helps our customers through the inspection process to comply with important safety laws and regulations.  Future occupants of the building are provided with a safe environment in which to live, work, or recreate and the building owner is assured that minimum construction standards have been followed.

Division staff also inspects existing commercial and industrial buildings when there is a change in occupants to ensure that the proposed use is compatible with the construction type of the building. In addition to conducting inspections, the division also provides plan review services for the more complicated plumbing, mechanical, and electrical systems when required.

Sunlight is absorbed by the solar panels and is converted to electricity by the installed system. The battery stores electricity that can be used at a later time, like cloudy days or during the evening.  Learn more about solar.
