Commercial Mechanical and Energy Inspections

By performing mandatory inspections, DPS can help in complying with the provisions of the legislation. The inspection list below is helpful in scheduling the inspections for the project. FOR ALL INSPECTIONS, A SET OF APPROVED PLANS STAMPED BY MONTGOMERY COUNTY DPS MUST BE ON THE JOB SITE FOR INSPECTOR’S REVIEW. Montgomery County commercial inspectors are cross trained in building and mechanical inspections, therefore the close-in and final building and mechanical inspections must be combined. However, close-in and final inspections must be requested under the relevant Building and Mechanical Permits. If all trades are not ready, the inspector will disapprove the scheduled inspections.
