Inspections cannot be scheduled using an R## number.


Once in the Inspection Permit Record there are two options:

1.  INSPECTION HISTORY – View previously scheduled inspections, inspection dates, inspection results, and inspector contact information.

Click the Back to Permit button to return to the Inspection Permit Record screen.

2.  SCHEDULE INSPECTION – Schedule all inspections.

    • Inspection Type – Select the type of inspection needed from the drop-down.  The inspection types available will be based on the permit number entered.  If the inspection type needed is not in the list, ensure that the appropriate permit number was entered (BU=building, PL=plumbing, EL=electrical, ME=mechanical, GA=gas).

    • Message for Inspector – Field for brief notes to inspector (example: AM concrete pour).  This is also where you can request morning or afternoon inspections.  Inspector will try to accommodate requests but they are not guaranteed. Please contact the inspector about arrival times before spending the day on the job site awaiting arrival.

    • Contact – Enter the name of the contact who will be meeting the inspector/discussing the job.  This should not be the person in the office scheduling inspections.

A pop-up will provide notification that inspection scheduling was successful and the Inspection History screen will be updated to reflect the inspection request.
