Inspection Codes

Inspections

Upon issuance of required permits, construction may begin. At specified stages of the building process, the project must be inspected to ensure that it is being constructed according to approved plans. Please note the Permit Inspection Hard Card must be conspicuously posted on the job site during construction and the approved plans must be available. Inspections scheduled prior to 7:00 AM will be inspected that day. Inspections outside normal work hours, on weekends or holidays are made at an extra charge. Re-inspections may also involve an extra fee.

Inspections must be scheduled by telephone using our automated inspection system or on the Internet using our E-GovPlus (One-Stop-Shop) interactive web site. To schedule inspections using our automated inspection system a touch-tone telephone is required. Dial (561) 805-6700 and follow the directions. You will need the permit number, pin number and the inspection code of the inspection to be scheduled. To schedule inspections using our E-GovPlus (One-Stop-Shop), the permit and pin numbers are required.

Inspection Status

Checking the status of your inspections and permit has never been easier. Click on the E-GovPlus (One-Stop-Shop) and enter the permit number or property address. Once the permit displays, select the inspections link from the menu on the left and the status displays in the “RES” column. Inspection results are updated daily at 6:00 PM, all other information is real-time.
Upon completion of construction and all required inspections (including final inspection) a “Certificate of Occupancy” or “Certificate of Completion” may be issued.
