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: A pre-submittal conference is your opportunity to ask questions about how to make your project comply with the construction codes. You should request this meeting before you apply for your permit. We use the pre-submittal conference to identify the options you have to go forward with your project. Once we have an agreement on your options, you can proceed with confidence. This helps you avoid issues or changes later, when they can be more expensive.
