Schedule an Inspection
  • Prior to beginning construction, please verify that your project meets all currently applicable requirements of the Washington State Governor’s Office and Washington State Department of Labor & Industries. For more information please visit the Governor’s website.

Inspectors who visit job sites will continue to wear personal protective equipment and conduct a no-contact inspection process as much as possible.  We will continue to ask that inspection areas be sanitized and vacated prior to inspection to ensure the minimum 6-ft distancing is always maintained.  Prior to or upon arrival, our inspector may contact the job-site contact to coordinate arrival procedures and confirm  COVID  protocols are in place as required.  If your project requires specific covid restrictions beyond what has already been addressed,  please provide  these requirements when you schedule your inspection.

Scheduling your inspection online via (MBP) is convenient, easy, and available 24-hrs a day. Inspections scheduled through MBP can be made two weeks in advance, up until 6:00 AM the morning of. Inspections scheduled through MBP are added directly to the schedule and are guaranteed to be accommodated no later than the following day.
