Electrical Inspection Notice
In order to avoid project delays and added expense to both the County and to the applicant, please ensure that all work is inspected and approved prior to concealment. Failure to comply with the codes cited in the link below could result in a violation and will be reported to the Colorado State Electrical Board.
Inspection Scheduling Process
Effective February 1, 2016, the Building Inspection Department is changing the inspection scheduling process. Prior to scheduling rough inspections, the following inspections must be approved: setbacks, footing/caissons, foundation, concrete encased electrode, perimeter drains and damp proof (if required/applicable). If an engineered letter is required, we will need that letter before rough inspections can be scheduled. Prior to scheduling final inspections, rough inspections must be approved, as well as all other required scheduled inspections. Final Approval and Certificate of Occupancy require all conditions of approval on the permit to be completed as well.
Call 811 Before You Dig
Knowing where underground utility lines are buried before each digging project begins helps to prevent injury, expense and penalties. The depth of utility lines may vary and multiple utility lines may exist in one area. Simple digging jobs can damage utility lines and can disrupt vital services to an entire neighborhood, harm those who dig and result in expensive fines and repair costs. Marked lines show those who dig the approximate location of underground lines and help prevent undesired consequences.
One easy phone call to 811 quickly begins the process of getting underground utility lines marked. 811 personnel will then notify affected utility companies, who will send crews to mark underground lines for free. For simple home improvement projects and even on private property calling 811 will save you time and hassle.

Building in Weld County
The Weld County Planning Department is organized into two service divisions including Building Inspection and Planning Services.
County residents are the most important people that come into our office, whether in person, mail or on the phone we are dependent on them. The Building Department’s goal is to work with the residents of Weld County to help them achieve their goals while providing safety during and after the construction process.
The Building Code, as adopted by Weld County, is dedicated to better building construction and greater safety for the public by uniformity in building laws. The Code is founded on broad-based principles that make possible the use of new materials and new construction systems.
