  Public Works prior to construction to ensure that environmental protection
  provisions are in place. (example-Silt fencing etc.)

        masonry walls, electrical, mechanical, fire stopping and bracing is in place.

Each project may have unique types and quantities of inspections required dependent upon the scope of work. Please contact your assigned Inspector prior to commencing any work so the inspections required for your project are understood from the onset.

requests for inspections as soon as practicable, and generally within forty-
eight(48) hours of the initial request.
