Des Moines, IA streamlines new home construction with its residential combination inspection pilot

Des Moines, IA Residential Combination Inspection Pilot


The city's Permit and Development Center (PDC) selected 18 inspectors for additional certification. This training allows each inspector to evaluate a new home's structural, electrical, mechanical, and plumbing features in a single visit. Local officials found that PDC resources were limited by multiple inspectors visiting a new home at the same time. The program started as a pilot for new single-family homes and expanded to all residential building projects.
