Building & Inspections

Inspections Staff

The Building and Inspection Department handles and issues all building permits for Lehi City.

The City has certified inspectors who are qualified plan examiners and inspectors for all types of building construction with the purpose to promote a safe and professional building quality for Lehi City.

Important Notes

Because of current circumstances, some inspections may be done through video calls, including inspections on basement finishes, additions or remodels in occupied homes and any furnace or water heater replacements. This takes effect immediately and until further notice.  

Help us more efficiently conduct inspections by ensuring that your project is ready before scheduling an inspection. Re-inspection fees will be assessed when a project is clearly not ready. Letter from the Building Official

As per September 25, 2017, Lehi City will no longer accept plans over 42″X30″. 

Note for Inspections: Please allow 24 hours notice for any type of inspection.

Note for General Contractors: It is important for the General Contractor to understand that it is his/her responsibility to be sure this project is constructed in full compliance with all state and local Codes and Ordinance. The plans are not all inclusive of all minimum codes and ordinances. This fact does not relieve the Contractor from compliance with all minimum standards. No omission from these plans gives permission for violation for any code or ordinance. No approval ever grants permission to violate any code or town ordinance.

Inspection Status Updates

Developers and contractors can now check the status of inspections. You will need either the building permit number, the site address, or the subdivision and lot number.

All plans are to be submitted electronically. This includes permit applications, compliance checks, structurals, and geo tech reports. Reviews will be done digitally and plans will be stamped on each page for inspectors to check for current approved sheets. Contractors will be responsible to print a hard copy of the approved plans showing the City’s stamp and have them on the job site for every inspection.
