Concrete slab or under-floor inspections are made after all in-slab or under-floor building service equipment, conduit, piping accessories, and other ancillary equipment items are in place but before any concrete is poured.

Rough framing inspection are made after the roof, all framing, fire blocking, and bracing are in place and all pipes, chimneys, and vents are complete and the rough electrical, plumbing, and heating wires, pipes, and ducts are approved. This must take place before any insulation or drywall is installed.

Final inspections are made after finish grading and the building is completed and ready for occupancy.

Other Inspections

In addition to the called inspections specified above, the building official may make or require other inspections of any construction work to ascertain compliance with the provisions of the building code and other laws which are enforced by the code enforcement agency. Before permanently covering any construction, please call the Building Department to determine if an inspection is required.
