Building Inspections

Building Services is offering limited inspections in occupied buildings. For details and to request an inspection for an occupied building, email buildinginspectionrequest@oakville.ca

For unoccupied buildings,

  • The Site Super will clear the building or area to be inspected, of all personnel and accompany the Inspector for the inspection.
  • The Inspector and Site Super are required to practice two metres physical distancing from all individuals on site.
  • If physical distancing and hygiene measures are not followed, the inspection will be stopped.
  • Inspection requests for new construction will be accepted by regular methods, listed on the building permit.

Be advised, you cannot assume that reports prepared by engineers or architects can substitute for the mandatory inspections required by Ontario Building Code. Inspectors may require completed work to be uncovered to determine Building Code compliance.
