Good Morning. Building Safety and Permits has 94 inspections with 6 leftover for today, December 19, 2014. Laura Kirkpatrick is out of the office today. JCC Offices will be closed both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. All contractors are asked to use our web based Epermits www.epermit.jamescitycountyva.gov site when requesting inspections. Inspections called in by phone are not guaranteed to be performed as they must go thru the web verification process. Note that Cold Weather concrete provisions per ACI 306R-10 must be provided anytime air temperatures are expected to fall below 40F degrees. Please note that the 2012 Va Residential Code now requires that wood framed walls of the building thermal envelope for Zone 4-(JCC) be insulated with a minimum of R-15 or R-13 plus R-1 min. continuous insulated siding. Have a great weekend.

NOTE: When scheduling inspections on the new e-permit website please remember the following:
For new 1&2 Family dwellings, the trade permits will automatically be scheduled at the time the framing inspection is requested. Trade inspections will not be conducted prior to framing inspections.
For alterations/additions, each trade permit holder must request their own inspections as those are not automatically scheduled.
We will not conduct a final building inspection until all trade inspections have passed. Trade inspections will not be done concurrently with the final building inspection. Final building inspections scheduled without all other trades passed will automatically be cancelled.
Please remember to schedule a concrete encased electrode inspection when a footing inspection has been scheduled for a new building.
