Building Inspections As Provincial Regulations continue to loosen around COVID-19 the Department of Development Services will be returning to physical Building Inspections and adhering to the guidelines for the construction sector as outlined by the B.C. government. The Department has issued a Building Bulletin outlining the protocol to be followed for physical building inspections , failure to comply with these protection measures will result in the inspection being cancelled and be rescheduled when the protective measures are in place. Our new Building Inspector, Gary Cyr, is working with Bernie Zimmer on physical inspections. As such Virtual Building Inspections will only be utilized when conditions are deemed warranted by the Building Inspector.
