A few of the most significant changes can be found here. VRC Plumbing update: Both hot and cold water piping in unconditioned attics and crawlspaces will require insulation per 2012 VRC 2603.5.

Karolee Towe and Calvin Le will be in reviewing plans today (Aug. 4).
We are currently reviewing residential permit applications submitted on: July 8, 2015.
We are currently reviewing commercial permit applications submitted on: June 18, 2015.
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.
