Inspections

The Building Commissioner conducts phase evaluations at various stages of construction and confirms that the building is a roofed structure and can be put into use. Once construction is complete, the structure is checked to ensure it meets all requirements.

Safety inspection

A safety inspection is a confirmation that a structure may be taken into use. If the building meets all safety requirements, the Building Commissioner will issue a certificate, and then hand it over to the construction manager or owner.

Weather-tightness inspection

A weather-tightness inspection is a confirmation that a building has reached the stage of being weathertight, which means a fully erected building that has been closed off from weather and wind.

Final inspection

A final inspection is a confirmation that the construction of a structure is completed and built in accordance with approved blueprints, laws, and regulations. If the structure has not been taken into use before the final inspection, it also serves as a safety inspection.
