Inspections

You will get an inspection card with your issued permit. The inspection card has information on the inspections your project needs.

The inspection card also has the IVR number needed to schedule inspections. When all of your inspections are approved, you need to call for a “999 Final” inspection. Once the final inspection is approved, your permit is "Final". This means the work is completed and approved. 

Revision process

If you did the work differently than what was on the plans, the inspector may ask for a revision. You will need to submit the plans with the changes for review again. The reviewers will check that the changes also meet the code. Revisions go through the same permit review and inspection process.
