Use the Special Instructions box in the schedule inspection screen to request a morning (a.m.) or afternoon (p.m.) inspection. Morning inspections occur between 9:30 a.m. to 11:59 a.m., afternoon inspections take place between 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. (The City of Coquitlam reserves the right to reschedule or postpone your inspection to an alternate time or later date, depending on inspector availability and workload.)

The View Inspections screen indicates the order to schedule inspections based on the permit type, beginning with the first inspection at the top of the list followed in the sequence listed. Construction, therefore, must not proceed beyond each inspection stage without the inspector’s express agreement and until the status of the preceeding inspection is closed by the Building Official.
To help permit holders to make sure previous inspection and deficiencies are kept up to date and completed, the Inspections system checks the permit number for previous inspections status that are not closed and automatically schedules previous inspections. Inspections and sequence may vary depending on the permit type and scope of work. If you require additional information regarding inspections, inspection sequence, and compliance please contact your Building Official for guidance prior to the start of construction. Please note, prematurely concealed work may have to be exposed for inspection causing an owner unnecessary delay and expense.
