Residents > Engineering
Throughout the construction of a project
within the Village, inspections are required to confirm it is meeting the
approved engineering site development plans and the
Standard Specifications for Design and Construction. Required inspections
include but are not limited to, erosion and sediment controls, water and sewer
mains, pavement base proof roll, curb and gutter, pavement prepave, pressure and
deflection testing, televising, and finals for occupancy. The inspector's duty
is to confirm that the construction is meeting Village minimum standards and is
not a nuisance to adjacent property owners; the inspection is not to approve of
a contractor's construction method, location or size of foundations, utilities,
or pavement. The contractor is entirely responsible for constructing the
project to meet the approved plan and his own methods, schedule, and build
quality. Most projects also require that as-builts be submitted prior to them
being finaled out or receiving occupancy certificates.
Available resources for single and multiple family residence inspections.
Available resources for commercial and industrial inspections.
