 Building Inspections

  • To ensure staff safety and appropriate physical distancing, we have implemented the following guidelines:

    • No inspections are to be done on a home or building that is occupied;
    • We request that the area or floor of the building be cleared of all workers other than those essential for the inspection;
    • On large projects with a Construction Safety Officers (CSO’s) the City will require a copy of the site safety plan prior to attending; and
    • If Inspection staff do not feel safe conducting an inspection, then they are to postpone the inspection until adequate measures are put in place. They are to document this and we will reschedule as appropriate.
