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.

Tips

Summary: If you are a qualifying building owner or applicant who frequently seeks a permit from the Seattle Department of Construction and Inspections (SDCI), you can streamline your application, review, and permit issuance process by obtaining a single permit that covers a number of remodeling or construction projects in one building. Called a “blanket permit,” the process eliminates the need for separate application procedures for many non-structural and non-mechanical projects that relate to tenant improvements.
