24-Hour Inspection Line - 303-762-2403

Final inspections are done after completion of entire project and when building is ready for occupancy.  You should allow several days for the series of Final Inspections to be completed.

Until now all inspections have been done by inspectors from the Building Division.  Other departments, however, often need to make a "Final."  They will check for various items indicated on your Plan Summary Sheet provided when the permit was issued.

Schedule your Final Inspections following these three steps:

Step One

  • Other Department Inspections - Call the 24-hour inspection line to schedule the inspections listed below if required on your project.  The Building Division will route each inspection to the correct department.  It is to your advantage to call these in promptly when ready so as not to delay the completion of your project.  These all must be approved before the permit will be closed out.  Refer to your Plan Review Summary sheet for required inspections.
    • Final Drainage - Inspected by the Engineering Department
    • Final Traffic - Inspected by the Traffic Department
    • Final Zoning - Setbacks, landscaping and parking space striping.  Inspected by the Community Development Department
    • Final Utilities - Inspected by the Utilities Department

Step Two

  • Non-structural Inspections - These all must be completed and approved prior to the Building Final and may be scheduled together with inspections under Step One.
    • Electrical - All fixtures, receptacles and light switches are installed and the service panel and service entrance are in place and energized. 
    • Plumbing - All fixtures are installed and operational. 
    • Mechanical/Heating and Ventilation - All M/H equipment shall be installed and operational.

Step Three

  • Building Final - All non-structural inspections listed above have been completed and approved.  All structural work is completed according to approved plans and meets Code.
  • Certificate of Occupancy - Prior to occupying a new building, this Certificate must be issued.  In some cases, a Temporary Certificate (TCO) may be issued with incidental remaining issues to be resolved within a set time.
