    Welcome to the updated Pima County building inspection portal, powered by Vuspex. You can schedule a traditional field inspection or a convenient remote inspection in one location. Click below to get started.

    Things to know before you schedule

    • Check your permit conditions and inspection status at Permits.Pima.gov.
    • Prepare for your inspection by consulting the Inspection Requirements.
    • Make sure the site address is clearly posted.
    • Gate codes or directions may be provided at the time of scheduling.
    Remote Inspections On Site Inspections

    Remote inspections may be scheduled anytime during normal operating inspection hours.

    • Site-off-model permits are eligible for remote inspection if the County has an updated electronic copy of the model plan.
    • Older permits without electronic documentation may be considered upon receipt of an electronic scan of the approved plan set. Scanned plans should be E-mailed to BuildingSafetyAdmin@pima.gov with a note requesting the documents be attached to the issued permit. (For files exceeding 20MB in size an FTP site may be needed to transfer documents.)

    Note: Depending on size, complexity, and type of inspection, a complete remote inspection may not be feasible. The remote inspector may partially approve the inspection and schedule an on-site inspection, if necessary.

    SCHEDULE BEFORE 4:00 P.M. FOR NEXT BUSINESS DAY INSPECTIONS Inspections located in the following areas are limited to one day a week for on site inspections:

    • Ajo, Why & Lukeville areas: Tuesdays only
    • Arivaca, Sasabe areas: Wednesdays only
    • Mt. Lemmon areas: Thursdays only
    Note: The above limitations do not apply to remote inspections.

    Get an estimated inspection window by checking our Building Inspector Tracking web site.

    Custom or Same-Day Field Inspections:

    Clients seeking a custom field inspection such as a week-end, a specific time, or same-day shall call the Building Inspection Supervisor at 520-724-6716. There may be an additional charge for custom field inspections.

    Schedule On-site Inspection By Phone

    Don't have a smart phone or computer, you can still schedule by phone. To schedule an inspector visit to your permitted job site you can call 520-724-6970 for the Interactive Voice Response (IVR) system.

    Before calling, you will need to have on hand:
    • Your 10-digit permit number (Note: The letters in your permit number should be ignored when scheduling on the IVR. i.e. – P21BP00001 should be entered as 2100001).
    • The 4-digit inspection code(s) located on your permit (If you have an old permit with 5-digit inspection codes, please delete the leading "0").
