Building Inspections

Building inspections are required at various stages of construction on every project that the city's Building Department has issued a building permit. Any inspection requested by 4:00 p.m. on a normal business day will be made the next working day. A request with missing information can cause a delay in scheduling the inspection.

To request an inspection, contact the Building Department Inspection Hotline at (314) 872-2521.
 Inspection requests left on the hotline voice mail need to be specific. Be prepared to provide:
  • Contact name and phone number
  • Permit number
  • Address, lot number, suite number
  • Type of inspection needed
  • Day of inspection
  • Preference of a morning 8AM-12:30 PM or afternoon 12-3:30 PM inspection
