The Building Division launched a new Interactive Voice Recording (IVR) Inspection Request System on Tuesday July 23. The Building Inspection Request Line telephone number will remain the same: 303-650-0626. Inspections can also be scheduled online at www.westminsterpermits.com or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Schedule inspections up to five business days in advance, cancel inspections (up until 6 a.m. the day of the inspection), and check inspection results 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The deadline for same-day inspections is 6 a.m.
Before calling, you will need
• Your six-digit permit number
• An inspection code - see brochure
Call the Inspection Request Line: 303-650-0626 Follow through the prompts. You will be provided with a confirmation number once the inspection has been scheduled. Please Note that all rough and final building, plumbing, mechanical and electrical inspections must be done as combination inspections and must be requested at the same time.
The Building Division is excited to announce a new and improved Online Permit Manager.
The Online Permit Manager allows you to:
Please be advised that the City of Westminster Building Division has issued a policy change for sanitary sewer repair permits.
A permit is now required for sewer lateral replacement work starting at the tap within the right of way (ROW). A single building permit will be issued regardless if the work is in the ROW, on private property or a combination of the two. A separate ROW permit from the Engineering department must be applied for if there is any street cut work or work within the public ROW.
New homes built in Westminster after Jan. 1, 2013 will benefit from a new building code requirement – residential fire sprinklers. These new building code requirements apply only to new homes and do not apply to residential additions, alterations or modifications. By requiring new homes to have sprinklers, the city has taken a progressive step to bring this safety feature to citizens. Modern fire suppression systems only engage in the area where heat is detected. This enables residents more time to evacuate the home and minimizes property damage.
The Westminster Building Division received direction from the State of Colorado that requires permits to be applied for and issued for whole house water softener systems that are connected to a domestic water supply and the sanitary sewer system. These systems must have a building permit issued before work can commence; all work must be done by a licensed plumber, and a final inspection is needed before the permit can be closed out. In most circumstances, the permit can be issued over the counter. Water filtration or conditioning devices that are intended for use with individual fixtures do not require a permit.
Effective July 18, 2012 the City of Westminster Building Division will no longer be requiring original signatures on sub-contractor signature forms. Additionally, the sub-contractor signature form can now be submitted via fax, email, mail, or in person.
Stickers will no longer be needed or issued for permits. Please be aware that all applicable sub-contractors must be signed onto the permit before inspections are called in, and inspections scheduled without sub-contractors signed on (if applicable) will be canceled.
The Building Division accepts credit cards. Payments must be made in person (no credit cards will be taken over the phone or via fax) and will be accepted for contractor registrations, building permit reinspection fees and some building permits fees.
Building permit fees may be paid via credit card with the exception of Utility water/sewer tap permits, Fire department permits, New residential or commercial permits, and Tenant finish permits (remodel permits may be paid with credit cards)
Effective Jan. 1, 2011, residential rental units are required to be licensed or registered. For further information, please visit the Rental Property Maintenance Inspection Program page.
