Schedule a Building Inspection

With our automated system, inspections can usually be scheduled for the next business day. Due to the high volume of requests, we recommend that you call before 8 p.m. on the day before you would like to schedule your inspection to secure a slot on the following business day. Calls after 8 p.m. may or may not scheduled for the following day. Just follow these steps:  
  • Call 720-865-2501 on a touch-tone telephone.
  • Enter your eight-digit permit number, which is located on the bottom of your permit. (Example: 00001234, please note that all eight digits must be entered, even if the first few are zeroes.) 
  • Enter the three-digit inspection code. (See inspection Codes Table to the right.)
  • You will receive a verification number and an inspection date at the end of your call.
  • On the day of inspection, call 720-865-2505 and press 6 after 8:30 a.m. to get the estimated time frame for your inspection. You will need to provide the address of the site to be inspected.
