The list of inspections required varies for different projects. Following is a generalized list of some of the most common types:
Footing/Slab – Items included are silt fencing, footings, and rough-ins within the slab. Each trade is responsible for having inspections for any part of their work that will not be visible for inspection at a later point. A special inspection/engineers inspection document is required for all commercial slabs.
Framing – Included are fire wall, seismic and wind bracing, beams, and electrical, mechanical, or plumbing located within walls that need to be inspected prior to wall sheathing.
Rough In - All trades will call for rough-in inspections as applicable.
Above Ceiling - All trades must call for inspections prior to installation of the ceiling.
Final – The final inspection will be completed when all work is complete. If work is to be completed under multiple permits a Certificate of Completion can be requested for a specific scope when complete. The Certificate of Occupancy is issued once the project is completely finished.
When hardships arise partial inspections can be requested. It is best to call for clarification when situations are not within the normal occurrences.
