Requesting Building Inspections During The Covid-19 Shelter in Place Order

Currently you may only request inspections via phone. 

Please call (408) 299-3161 and leave a voicemail.

To ensure the safety of everyone involved in the inspection process you must implement and observe the protocols required by the County of Santa Clara Health Official’s Shelter in Place order. The requirements for small construction sites can be found here Appendix B-1 and for large construction sites here Appendix B-2.

In addition to implementing the protocols above you must complete the Covid-19 infrastructure COVID-19 Essential Critical Infrastructure Workers form​ and have it completed and available when your inspector arrives. The inspector will review the document for completeness and add it to your permit record.


The Office of Building Inspection ensures that buildings are compliant with current code in order to maintain a safe community standard. This is accomplished with professional plan checking, building inspection and investigation of substandard structures.
