Schedule DPS Building Construction Related Permitting Inspections
A building inspection may be scheduled online by using the prompts on Permitting Services "Search for a Permit" page (click link). The building permit(s) must be available to schedule an inspection.

Enter the type of permit and permit number. On the "Schedule Inspection" tab enter the type and date of inspection and the contact ID number. If it is before 12;00 noon, select the date for the following day. If it is after 12:00 noon, then select the date for two days hence. A requestor may not schedule a specific inspection time or time period. DPS cannot guarantee that the inspection will occur during a particular timeframe. Contact the inspector for an approximate time for the inspection. The system will list the date of inspection, inspector name and telephone number and provide a confirmation number.

DPS inspectors begin their schedule as early as 7:00 AM. DPS cannot guarantee that the inspection will occur during a particular timeframe. Please provide a contact name and phone number for inspections for Sediment Control permits and for Public Right-of-Way permits.

Effective December 31, 2015, the Department of Permitting Services (DPS) will retire the Interactive Voice Response (IVR) phone system that had been used to schedule inspections.

NOTE: The inspector assigned at the time the inspection is scheduled may not be the inspector assigned to the inspection. Inspector's work assignment are scheduled each morning by 8:00 AM. For the most current schedule, customers should go to the DPS website, or contact 311 after 8:00 AM on the morning of the inspection to view the name and telephone number of the inspector that has been assigned the inspection/inspections for that day.
