SDCI Closures, Service Updates, and Inspection Requirements

SDCI customer service areas remain closed until further notice and continue offering services online. King County has approval from the State Department of Health to allow all private construction activities that are low-risk and adhere to strict COVID 19 Job site Requirements. The City of Seattle has issued requirements for construction projects seeking inspections. The City WILL NOT INSPECT any site that does not follow these requirements.


Summary: This Tip explains the processes and requirements for the Seattle Department of Construction and Inspections (SDCI) addressing reviews. SDCI is responsible for assigning all addresses for the city of Seattle, and for adding addresses to the discrete address point (DAP) layer in the geographic information system (GIS). The DAP layer allows some governmental and non-governmental agencies the ability to locate properties within the city with a high degree of certainty so that services, including emergency response, may arrive to an accurate location in a timely manner.
