 Construction Reminders Inspections are an essential part of ensuring safe building environments. However, no inspections can be made until the required permits for performing the work are issued. As licensed construction professionals it is your responsibility to see that all required permits for your projects are secured before starting any work. Please be aware that if work is started on any building, electrical, mechanical, or plumbing projects without first obtaining the required permit(s), a double fee will be assessed for that project. Please be sure that your permits are issued before commencing with any work so that timely inspections may be performed and your construction projects are completed in compliance with the building codes.
