Scheduling alert: Some SDCI inspections must be scheduled several days in the future. To avoid delays in your project, you may need to schedule your inspections a few days in advance. To help us better serve all inspections customers, please cancel your schedule​d inspection if it is no longer needed or you are not ready for the inspection.

COVID Construction Site Protocols Lifted

On June 30, Governor Inslee lifted Phase 3 COVID restrictions for private construction sites. We no longer require a COVID site safety email before conducting inspections.

Virtual Inspections

Depending on your project, we may be able to conduct a video inspection instead of an in-person inspection. Please read Video Inspections and SDCI Guide to Video Inspections to see if your project qualifies. Once you have completed your video inspection, please take our brief, anonymous survey to help us improve our process.
