Covid-19 mitigation procedures will be strictly enforced. It is the responsibility of the contractor to ensure all required protocol are implemented and executed.
Every job site contractor will identify a lead individual responsible for Covid-19 procedure enforcement.

Non occupied projects will be cleared from all trade’s personnel in the building or floor and one site foremen or property owner may accompany the inspector on the inspection. The inspector has the right to inform the site foreman to clear the floor or the building. If you do not comply, the inspector will not conduct the inspection.

Occupied projects will have the contractor or property owner meet the inspector on site and clear the building of all occupants or assemble them in one room or floor outside of the inspector’s path to the inspection area. The inspector will ask prior to entering the building if anyone is or has been sick or under quarantine. If the answer to any of the preceding questions is yes, the inspector will not conduct the inspection.

Although we have resumed construction and inspections, the virus is still active. Please take every precaution for the safety of all individuals in the field and in the office.
