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 is about the flexibility in the building code, and how you can use it. The code allows us to consider different ways you can show your project meets the goals of the code. In many, but not all, cases this flexibility could help you get approval for your project. We need to agree with what you do first, though.
