About Special Inspections

Special inspections are for emergency or unusual circumstances, such as access control, electrical power shutdowns, or special event inspections that need to be conducted outside of a business’s normal operating hours. 

Do not use this form to reserve more time with an inspector. Instead, schedule all needed inspections online by 11:59 p.m. and make a note on the inspection request that you may need additional inspector time to complete numerous inspections/units. Denver’s chief inspectors will work to accommodate any extra time needed for your site, based on current workloads. Schedule online now >>
