Good Morning. Building Safety and Permits has 59 inspections with 2 leftover for today May 22. Laura Kirkpatrick is out of the office today. JCC Offices will be closed on Monday May 25 in honor of Memorial Day.
Due to an increase in the inspection workload, we can only accept am or pm time requests for occupied homes. Note that this may affect your concrete scheduling. Note that mandatory implementation of the 2012 VA Residential Codes will take effect July 14, 2015. There have been a number of changes between the 2009 and the 2012 code cycle. A few of the most significant changes can be found here. Building Safety & Permits has a job opening for a part-time Building Inspector. Go to www.jamescitycountyva.gov for details.

David Kent, Karolee Towe and Calvin Le will be in reviewing plans today (May 22).
We are currently reviewing residential permit applications submitted on: May 5, 2015.
We are currently reviewing commercial permit applications submitted on: May 11, 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.
