NEW: Online Inspection Scheduling for Building Permits

Click here to download the Online Inspection Scheduling User Manual

The City of Columbus Building and Zoning Services continues to allow building and trade permit holders to schedule, reschedule and cancel inspections online.

Because of this change, regular business day inspections can be scheduled online up until midnight of the day before the inspection.

  • The 4:00 PM cut off time for next day inspections will still apply to inspection requests that are called in.
  • Online inspection scheduling does not apply to certain fire protection inspections and requests for after-hours inspections. Those will still need to be called in, submitted online via a request form, or faxed.

To begin, click the "Schedule an Inspection" link under the "Building" section below.
