      I’m looking for info on what process others use regarding inspection of work under an Inspection Order that requires a Building Permit.  For example:

      • Order is issued to create a service room to separate equipment from the remainder of the floor area.
      • Drawings submitted to Bldg Dept and Permit issued
      • Who does the inspection? Fire or Bldg?
        • I’m thinking Bldg inspects,
        • Bldg Permit closed,
        • Report back to FD (by either the Owner or Bldg)
      • Fire Order completed.

      What do other places follow?

      Hello Jon,

      • Order is issued to create a service room to separate equipment from the remainder of the floor area.
      • Drawings submitted to Bldg Dept and Permit issued
      • Who does the inspection? Fire or Bldg?I’m thinking Bldg inspects, Reply – Our/Fire department does all followup visits. 
      • Bldg Permit closed, Reply – After the fire department does the final inspections. 
      • Report back to FD (by either the Owner or Bldg) Reply – Fire does final inspection. 
      • Fire Order completed.

      Hopefully this helps.

        Joseph, are your FPOs also qualified Building Inspectors?

      Hello Jon,

      In Ottawa once the owner gets a building permit those deficiencies are considered cleared off the  fire order. Building code services follows up with the permit and completes the permit inspection.

      Stay warm.

      Actually, it was great timing! I’m currently drafting a policy/procedure for us on this.
