Inspections provide a means for the building division to ensure that minimum standards are met and appropriate materials are used in the construction process. Once a permit has been issued, the contractor and/or subcontractor will need to contact Planning & Development Services to schedule each inspection and receive approval for the inspection before proceeding to the next phase of construction.  For new construction, a minimum of 11 inspections are usually required and must be completed in the following order:

  1. Plumbing rough-in
  2. Building foundation
  3. Electrical rough-in*
  4. Plumbing top out*
  5. Mechanical rough-in*
  6. Framing
  7. Energy
  8. Plumbing final*
  9. Electrical final*
  10. Mechanical final*
  11. Building final

* Note: Inspections marked with an asterisk can be completed in any order provided the electrical rough-in, plumbing top out, and mechanical rough-in inspections are completed before the framing inspection and the plumbing final, electrical final, and mechanical final inspections are completed before the building final inspection.

To schedule an inspection please contact Planning & Development Services at 979.764.3570 or click here to schedule your inspection online.

Once the structure is complete and final approval has been given by all appropriate City departments, a Certificate of Occupancy (CO) will be issued and the structure can be occupied.  Please contact Brian Binford, Building Official at or 979.764.3570 for more detailed instructions on the inspection process.
