                Building Division

                COVID-19 Operations

                Our building inspections are still moving forward as scheduled. Our building inspectors are taking extra precautions, and if you do not feel comfortable having someone enter your home to perform an already scheduled inspection, please contact us. Our inspectors will not be entering job sites if they are not comfortable with the maintenance of the site. Some of the items that may make them uncomfortable and decide to reschedule the inspection include crowded job sites with several workmen on site, multiple trades and workers in a building, especially at final inspections, and workers on site showing signs of illness.

                We are currently accepting building permit applications electronically until normal operations are restored. This includes all permits listed on our Building Division Applications page. ?The existing electronic submission process for residential mechanical permits remains unchanged. ?

                To submit, please e-mail your application with all relevant paperwork to [email protected]. Once our Permitting Team receives your application and determines it is complete, they will contact you for payment. Currently only e-checks and credit cards will be accepted. An application will be considered submitted and processing will begin after receiving payment. Please do not include all documents within one attachment. ?Include the application, building plans, and any other information such as engineering or Manual J, D and S’s as individual files.

                Please see the Ada County web page for updates on county closures and cancellations.

Plans Examiners and Building Code Technicians review construction drawings for code compliance and Building Inspectors perform on-site inspections.? This process confirms that buildings and structures in Ada County are sound and in compliance with Fire and Life Safety standards.

                Frequently Asked Questions

                How long have building codes been around?

                Building codes date back as far as 2000 B.C with the code of Hammurabi. Some of this text can still be found in the Louvre in Paris France. Also, through Nero’s Rome and into the 12th century Europe, in England in the 1600’s and in America, as soon urban life indicated the need. One of the earliest tragedies that led to the development of building codes in America was the 1871 Chicago fire that destroyed 17,000 buildings cost 250 lives and left 100,000 people homeless.

                Do we require rebar in footings and foundations? If rebar in footings and foundations is not required, do I need a foundation inspection?

                Based on our design criteria rebar is not required unless it is part of an engineered design or a subdivision wide geotechnical report.

                Footing inspections are always required. A foundation inspection is not required where rebar is placed above code minimum unless it is on the approved plans, required by an engineer or part of a geotechnical report.

                Do we do AM and PM inspection requests?

                We do what we can to accommodate AM/PM. However, it is not a guarantee. Inspection are done in accordance with our daily schedule and area the inspector is in throughout the day.

                When do I request an inspection?

                Inspections need to be requested the day before your inspection is needed and before 4:30 PM via phone and before midnight via email request.? This assures that the inspection will be on the list for the following day.

                Can I request an inspection on line?

                Can I pour concrete during cold weather?

                Yes, if the ground is not frozen.
