Building Department Scheduling Information
As a service and convenience for our customers, the Building Department will try posting daily routes and time windows (PDF) of all pre-scheduled building, wiring, plumbing, and gas inspections. If a user finds that the schedule has not been updated, they should call the Building Department and speak with a staff person.
Due to the many demands on the inspectors’ daily schedules, these inspection schedules represent only a partial list of their daily responsibilities and is intended as a general time window. The use of these schedules requires the flexibility of a half an hour before or after the given time frame, as the Building Department cannot control unforeseen circumstances, emergency calls, or cancellations.
Please plan your day accordingly so that your scheduled inspection can be performed as anticipated. Cancellations must be called into the Building Department as close as possible to 8:30 a.m. of the scheduled day. Please check the Town of Needham’s home page during inclement weather for town office closings or changes in office hours.
