Starting August 1, all electrical, mechanical, construction, and phased permits that are part of a project that includes a smoke control system will include new inspection types. These new inspection types will allow for better transparency within our online permitting system for both inspectors and contractors. These new inspection types also allows for future automation features for these life safety systems.
- Electrical permits will now have smoke control fan, fire pump, legally required standby system, and emergency generator inspection types.
- Construction and phased permits will include smoke control shaft cover or final and smoke control commissioning inspection types.
- Mechanical permits or construction and phased permits that include mechanical scope, will have fire/smoke damper inspection types included.
