Good Morning. Building Safety and Permits has 69 inspections with 2 leftover for today Oct. 2. Alex Jedlinski and Randy Olson are out of the office today.
Please keep in mind that the minimum jobsite plan size is 24” X 36”.
Note that mandatory implementation of the 2012 VA Residential Codes was effective 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. VRC Plumbing update: Both hot and cold water piping in unconditioned attics and crawlspaces will require insulation per 2012 VRC 2603.5. All contractor requested inspections must be scheduled thru the internet Epermit system. The front office staff will only accept inspection requests for property owners who have not received a PIN to access the system.

Calvin Le will be in reviewing plans today (Oct. 2).
We are currently reviewing residential permit applications submitted on: Sept. 3, 2015.
We are currently reviewing commercial permit applications submitted on: Sept. 10, 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.
