Inspections

Expect some service reductions when visiting or calling the Development and Building Services Centre on October 7.  How this may affect you

Inspections ensure that construction and trades work:

  • Matches the work described under the permit
  • Complies with the relevant bylaws
  • Meets safety, accessibility, and green building goals

Because of the complexity of modern buildings and technologies, several inspections at different stages of construction are often required.
