Good Morning. Building Safety and Permits has 100 inspections with 7 leftover for today, April 17. Chad Adamson and Scott Shuler are out of the office today.
The Epermit system will be down for maintenance on Sunday from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. Please submit any required foundation surveys at least 2 business days in advance of requesting a second foundation inspection to prevent delays in scheduling your inspections. Note that Compaction Reports by an RDP are required for concrete floor slabs where fill depths exceed 24” of clean sand or gravel and 8” for earth. If using #57 stone for fill, a third party inspection report must be submitted to our office in accordance with JCC 3rd Party Inspection policy. http://www.jamescitycountyva.gov/pdf/buildingsafetyandpermits/Forms-all/IndepInspPol-mem.pdf.

Karolee Towe and Calvin Le will be in reviewing plans today (April 17).
We are currently reviewing residential permit applications submitted on: March 30, 2015.
We are currently reviewing commercial permit applications submitted on: April 4, 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.
