The International Building Code (IBC) requires special inspections be performed on structures constructed within the scope of Chapter 17. Section 10-1-3 of the Town of Vail Municipal Code also authorizes the Building Official to make or require inspections of construction work for residential structures as required by Chapter 17 of the IBC.
Projects submitted for review shall include a Statement of Special Inspections, as required by Sections 1704.2.3 and 1704.3 of the IBC, as a condition for permit approval and issuance.
These inspections shall be performed by an approved agency that is objective, competent and independent from the contractor responsible for the work being inspected. The agency shall disclose to the Building Official and the registered design professional in responsible charge possible conflicts of interest so that objectivity can be confirmed.
Town of Vail approved agencies: (to be considered for approval, contact firstname.lastname@example.org)
Certificates of Occupancy and/or Completion will not be issued for any project until ALL special inspections are approved and required reports of the special inspections with seal and original signatures are received, reviewed and approved by the Building Official.
