Commercial structural inspectors phone numbers

If you have issues to discuss prior to your inspection, our inspectors are available by phone between 7:30-8:30 a.m., Monday-Friday. To find out who your inspector is, view our commercial structural inspector area map.

If your permit involves ground disturbance you will need an erosion control inspection. Please contact Site Development at (503) 823-6892 for information on what is needed at your site.


Work may not be approved for a number of reasons: the inspector may not have access to do the inspection, the work may not be complete or there may be code violations. If corrections need to be made, the inspector will note them on the inspection report. You will need to make any needed corrections and request a reinspection. Please note that a reinspection fee may be charged for more than one reinspection for a single issue.
