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: If you have a simple construction project that does not require extensive plan review, you may be able to speed up your permit application, review, and issuance process by getting a subject-to-field-Inspection (STFI) permit. This Tip identifies project types that qualify for the STFI process and highlights the corresponding application requirements.
