Building Inspections

Inspection Services

Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.  (excluding holidays)

NOTICE: Inspection appointments will not be available on Tuesday, Dec. 4. Normal inspection scheduling will resume on Dec. 5. 

Scheduling Inspections

On April 9, 2018, the city launched EnerGov, a new online land management and permitting system. With this new system, you can request permit-related inspections through an online Customer Self-Service (CSS) Portal.  Please click the link to this portal below to register your account ( or log-in) and to request inspections. 

Based on the type of work, various progress inspections and a final inspection are required to complete the City of Boulder building permit process. A responsible party must be present during the inspection.

Daily inspection schedules will be posted to CSS each morning. Inspectors do their best to honor requests for a.m. or p.m. inspections but cannot guarantee this, so it is recommended that you check the daily schedule to confirm your scheduled inspection. To view the day’s inspection schedule, click the CSS link below. Find the heading “Today’s Inspections” and click “View”. Please note, the times listed on the schedule are not accurate representations of when an inspector may arrive on site for an inspection. Instead, determine which stop number your site is in the “order” column for the assigned inspector.  

If you need a more specific inspection time frame, please call the inspector assigned to your project (note the inspectors’ phone numbers to the right).  If you are unable to reach your inspector, please leave a detailed message, including your name, number, and site address and they will return your call as soon as possible.

Customer Self-Service Portal

Inspection Results

Inspectors will provide you with clear and simple results that can be viewed through the Customer Self-Service Portal Look for the "Pass," "Fail" and "Partial" results, as well as comments.

Scheduling a Re-inspection

If your site has failed an inspection, complete the necessary corrections to achieve code compliance, and then request a re-inspection through CSS.

Once Inspections Are Complete

After all fees are paid and inspections are completed, a Certificate of Occupancy or Letter of Completion will be issued and is required before the building may be occupied.
