The Community Development Building Inspections component is responsible for receiving building permit applications; reviewing construction documents; issuing permits for the erection, alteration, and moving of buildings and structures; inspecting the premises for which permits have been issued; and enforcing compliance with the provisions of the Building Code within the City.
Building Inspections inspects for the Building, Plumbing, Electrical, Mechanical and Energy Conservation Codes.
A building permit includes inspections to ensure the work is done properly, which protects the property owner from future liability. The property owner is liable for work done without a permit, as work may not have been done properly. Inspections must be scheduled 24-hours in advance and permits must be issued prior to scheduling inspections.
When is a Building Permit Required?
Any owner or authorized agent who intends to construct, enlarge, alter, repair, move, demolish, or change the occupancy of a building or structure, or to erect, install, enlarge, alter, repair, remove, convert, or replace any electrical, gas, mechanical, or plumbing system, the installation of which is regulated by the Building Code, or to cause any such work to be done, shall first make application to the Inspection Department and obtain the required permit.
Please call the CED Administrative Assistant at (435)734-6604 to schedule inspections. All Building inspections must be scheduled at least 24-hours in advance of the desired inspection time; you will need to provide the building permit number as well as the address of the project.
