Temporary Changes to Building Inspection Policy
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic the City's Building Services Division has temporarily modified their services effective immediately. The reason for these changes is to minimize exposure between the public and City employees as requested by public health officials. Essential services (law enforcement, snow/ice, road repair, signal light maintenance, etc) will continue to be provided.
For the time being, the Building Division will not be conducting inspections on the interior of a home or basement, such as but not limited to furnaces, water heaters, basement finishes and interior remodels. However, inspections for new construction and for the exterior of homes such as a new roof, deck, gazebo, etc. will occur as usual. Exceptions and/or emergencies will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis to ensure public health and safety.
The City continues to closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and take the appropriate precautions recommended by Tri-County Health and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE). For questions, please use the City's website to report a problem or call the City's 24-hr Citizen Response Center at 303-325-8000; call volumes may become heavy.

The Building Department enforces codes and regulations established by the 2015 International Building Code governing the construction, alteration, and maintenance of buildings and structures within the City of Centennial for the protection of residents and property.
