What type of inspections are required?

Inspections are required at a minimum for building site-in after the location has been staked out to make sure it meets setbacks, footing depth, rebar and forms before pouring concrete, wall framing, fire and smoke penetrations, and any HVAC, plumbing, or electrical work before enclosing any walls, filling any trenches, or pouring any concrete that may conceal any of these components.  The Building Inspector may require additional inspections depending on the project.  Failure to call for inspections may result in the removal of finished portions of the project to ensure the components covered up meet code.
