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: Tip 303A applies only to structures within the scope of the Seattle Residential Code (SRC) including detached one- and two-family dwellings, townhouses up to three stories in height, each with a separate means of egress, and their accessory structures. Generally, all other structures are subject to the Seattle Building Code (SBC). This Tip outlines important code items that you are required to include on plans for your projects. You may need to include additional items depending on your specific project. Remember that these guidelines are not substitutes for our codes and regulations.
