Field Issuance Remodel Program

1 Comment

FIR Program 1

Continues to grow and help customers succeed...


The Field Issuance Remodel (FIR) Program started as a pilot project five years ago with one inspector. It now has three full-time senior building inspectors and has enjoyed tremendous support from its members.

Participating in this program means that contractors rarely have to go downtown to obtain permits because the FIR inspector is present onsite before a project begins to review and approve plans, troubleshoot issues and conduct inspections. This helps to eliminate some of the remodeling surprises early on, allows customers to start work more quickly and provides a single-point-of-contact to the customer.


FIR Program 2The continued demand for the FIR Program’s services has allowed the bureau to expand the program to include three full-time inspectors. With demand continuing, the bureau is currently assessing future expansion needs to allow us to continue taking new customers into the program.


There are many advantages to doing work through the FIR program. To get more information about how you can get involved in this innovative and popular program, please contact FIR Inspectors Lee Hiltenbrand at (503) 823-7784 or Steve Ault at (503) 823-7349.
