Expanding Building Inspection Services under Revised Shelter in Place Order

Construction Services during COVID-19

Under the revised Shelter in Place Order issued by the Alameda County Public Health Department on April 29, 2020 to continue to limit the spread of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), all construction projects that follow the Construction Project Safety Protocols included in the Order are allowed to proceed.

To align with the revised Shelter in Place Order, the City is expanding building inspection services to allow all construction projects in Fremont to move forward. Building inspections will be available for all projects starting Monday, May 4, 2020. Inspections can be scheduled online through the City’s Accela Citizen Access (ACA) portal or by phone at 510-494-4885. The City is also offering remote video inspections  for limited types of construction projects.

As building inspection services expand, the City expects the demand for inspections to exceed capacity for the first few weeks. The City is asking residents, contractors, and developers for their patience and cooperation as staff works through the backlog of inspections.

To address safety concerns, during in-person building inspections, City staff is required to follow the social/physical distancing requirements recommended by the Alameda County Public Health Department and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to help limit the spread of COVID-19. Inspectors wear personal protective equipment; use hand sanitizer where hand-washing facilities are limited; practice social/physical distancing protocols; limit contact with surfaces at the inspection site; and observe if anyone is exhibiting shortness of breath or persistent coughing, at which time the inspection is halted and the inspector leaves the premises.

For more information on building inspections, please contact Building Inspection at 510-494-4400 or by email.
