The Building Inspection team determines whether to recommend a preconstruction meeting for a project. However, the contractor can also request one. The meeting assists to bridge gaps between the design and construction teams. The meeting takes place after approval of the construction documents and around the time that construction commences. The following are suggested topics for discussion:
Construction project requirements for inspection and construction methods associated to the project
Exchange of contact information with appropriate parties involved in the construction
Procedures for Special Inspections associated to the project
Project specific conditions associated with unusual, unique or special conditions, including any code modifications
Requirements for phasing or for occupancy (Important dates involved with the project, e.g. expected occupancy date, furniture installation, employee training, etc.)
If you would like to schedule a preconstruction meeting for a project, contact the Chief of Commercial Inspections. If the inspection team determines that a preconstruction meeting is needed, an inspector will contact the contractor.
