Welcome to Building Inspections
Building Inspections’ mission is to provide structural inspections at predetermined stages of construction to protect the public from economic harm or injury.
Our goal is to provide superior customer service at all times.
Please use our Pasco County Online Permitting System which allows contractors to schedule inspections and obtain inspection results.
If at any time the online inspection system is inoperable, you may call our main building inspections phone number and select option 2.

Beginning immediately, the energy calculations, Manual J and Manual S along with an AHRI matching certificate will be required to be on site for Final Mechanical Inspections as well as Rough and Final Insulation Inspections. At the time of the Final Mechanical Inspection, these documents must be up to date with the equipment actually installed (ie. The model numbers must match).
Your Inspector will be reviewing the documents to assure that the equipment installed is as indicated and that the Manual S shows that the equipment meets the Manual J load.
Non-compliance with this notice will result in a Failed inspection after September 30, 2019.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation in this manner.
