The normal inspection hours are from 7:30 am and 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday. Inspection requests are made through the Mobile Eyes Contractor Permit Portal. All attempts will be made to fulfill the date and time requested, anticipate the request to be fulfilled within 24 to 48 hours of the request. Once the inspection has been scheduled by the AFPD inspector, the contact listed on the permit application will be sent an automated email indicating the date and time of the scheduled inspection.
It is required that a representative from the requesting company be on-site for all inspections. That person shall be ready for inspection at least 30 minutes prior to the scheduled time and be able to remain on-site 60 minutes after the scheduled time.
It is the responsibility of the requesting contractor to cancel the inspection at least 24 hours prior to scheduled inspection. If the representative from the requesting company is not on-site during the inspection window, or the work is not complete when the inspector arrives a re-inspection fee will be assessed, and a subsequent inspection shall be scheduled at another date and time.
Construction Fire Safety
All new buildings and building additions will be required to have an approved construction fire safety plan provided to AFPD prior to a building permit being issued. Tenant finish projects over 5,000 square feet and those at the discretion of the plan reviewer will also require a fire safety plan. This plan must address all relevant items from National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 241.
