Commercial inspections provides building, electrical, plumbing, mechanical/sprinkler, and sign inspection services.
Inspections of commercial buildings, structures and equipment
Once a permit is issued, site inspections need to be conducted by a City of Winnipeg inspector to audit the status of the project and assess compliance with applicable codes, standards, and bylaws. Progress inspections may be required at each mandatory inspection stage based on the size of the project.
Progress inspections are mandatory and inspections must be completed to the final stage to support the proposed occupancy request.
As per Section 5 of The Winnipeg Building By-law, the building owner must ensure every part of the building is in compliance with the codes that were in effect at the time of construction, alteration or renovation. This requirement applies whether or not the owner owned the building at the time it was constructed, altered or renovated.
Professional certifications must be submitted once construction is complete and before requesting occupancy if design professionals are involved in the project. Certifications are required when stand-alone structural, architectural, electrical, and/or mechanical alterations are taking place. In some cases, professional certifications may be required when occupancy is not a part of the project.
