Building Inspections

The Pennsylvania Uniform Construction Code stipulates certain inspections are required for permitted construction activities. Inspections will follow the issuance of a permit and the commencement of work. The inspections are needed to make sure that all work is performed in a satisfactory manner and that there are no violations of building or construction codes. The Department will strictly enforce this requirement.

Each construction permit has certain required inspections that are listed on the permit document. Requests for these required inspections may be e-mailed to the appropriate District Offices as listed on the permit using the associated e-mail boxes listed below. When requesting required permit inspections, specify the permit number, type of inspection, date and preferred time (AM or PM). As an added convenience, Licenses and Inspections District Offices have a customer service standard of inspection within 2 business days for requested permit inspections.

Anyone needing to schedule construction permit inspections may do so by contacting the District Office listed on the permit application.
