Building Inspections

Inspection Process

Upon issuance of a building permit, certain inspections are required so that compliance with the building code may be verified. This is done for the safety of the people who will be occupying or otherwise using the structure or space once it is completed.
City Inspectors will make both routine and required inspections during the construction process.
 
These links contain information that will help you construct your project under the provisions of the building code. Please note that these handouts do not represent the entire building code; rather, they are highlights of the code that contain answers to frequently asked questions. If you have questions, contact the Codes Administration Department at 816-969-1200.
