The basic concept to keep in mind during the construction process is getting an inspection BEFORE anything is covered.

  • Placing concrete, brick or sheetrock
  • Covering electrical, plumbing, mechanical work or fire-sprinkler system
  • Covering insulation
  • Covering floor and wall framing
  • Commercial kitchen hoods and fire suppression systems

These inspections are required to insure that the construction process is proceeding according to the accepted plans and that all current code standards are being met.

It is the contractor's responsibility to schedule all inspections at least 24 hours prior to time needed.
