Inspections

Notice to Public: On Sept. 30, 2021, Coquitlam will honour the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, a day to acknowledge the impact of residential schools on Indigenous Peoples in Canada. As a result, many civic facilities in Coquitlam will be closed or operate with reduced hours. The Coquitlam Building Department will not be conducting inspections on September 30 2021. All inspections requested will be re directed to the next business day. 

In honouring this day, Coquitlam encourages residents to reflect on Canada and B.C.'s history with Indigenous Peoples, and to consider what is necessary to work towards truth and reconciliation.


About Coquitlam Inspections

Our 24/7 online inspections system enables you to schedule your building and/or plumbing inspection(s) using your computer or mobile phone. Use your issued building or plumbing permit number to view results or to schedule, cancel or reschedule and inspection. Please enter morning or afternoon inspection requests in the comments and instructions field through the Inspections system. These morning or afternoon times cannot be guaranteed, however staff will make every effort to satisfy these requests.  A delay in the inspection date or requested time may occur on days when higher volume inspections are scheduled or due to unforeseen circumstances.

Permit Number

All inspections that relate to your particular Permit Number will be listed in sequence for scheduling inspections at each stage of construction. Only inspections related to that one Permit Number will be viewable. These inspections should be scheduled and completed in the order listed prior to proceeding to the next inspection. There may be additional or multiple permits related to the construction on your property. (e.g. Interior Plumbing Services, Exterior Plumbing Services, Plumbing Sprinklers other building permits.)

You will need to Login and enter each Permit Number separately to schedule the inspection related to that Permit.

Good Neighbour Construction

Please keep all building materials, waste bins and equipment safely and neatly stored on site and not on City streets, lanes, boulevards or neighbouring properties. It is recommended that a strongly constructed fence, 1.8 meters high, be provided around the construction site.
