When do I need building permit inspections, and who do I call?

Depending on the proposed building project, you will need periodic inspections throughout the construction period. A building permit inspection list is available for applicants that instruct them when inspections should be scheduled and at what stages of construction need to be checked for building code compliance.

When scheduling an inspection, it is required for the resident to provide the street address, permit number, and the type of inspection. Please be aware that all inspections must be scheduled a minimum of 24 hours prior to the preferred inspection date. To schedule a building, plumbing, or electrical inspection, please contact the Building and Safety Division at 847-671-8555. In addition, please schedule a final inspection. It is important to schedule a final inspection in order for the Building and Safety Division to close your file.
