Building Inspection

The Town of Narragansett now uses E-Permitting, see the below link to start your building permit.

Narragansett E-Permit

The Building Inspection Department is responsible for the issuance of building permits and for performing field inspections to ensure compliance of Federal, State and Local Building Codes.  This Department also enforces the Town Zoning Ordinance, minimum housing standards, flood zone requirements, ADA and ISDS regulations, as well as rental registrations within the Town.

Inspection Information


Any request for a building inspection must be made by the contractor 24 hours in advance. Please give name of owner, address of property, type of inspection, and permit number. The building permit card must be posted on the job site for ALL inspections.  In addition, all approved plans and engineering specifications must be on-site at all times during construction or no inspections will be performed. All communication is done through E-Permitting.

Plumbing, Electrical, and Mechanical


Inspections for plumbing, electrical and mechanical are done on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday. You must call one day ahead of time with the property address and the permit number.  

PLEASE DO NOT CALL IN FOR INSPECTION RESULTS.
ALL INSPECTION RESULTS ARE POSTED ON THE E-PERMIT.

Re-Inspection


Failure to pass an inspection or have the permit card on site along with the approved construction plans will result in a $35 re-inspection fee.

Certificate of Occupancy


In order to receive a certificate of occupancy all final inspections and certifications must be completed and the 50.00 CO fee must be paid. The Certificate of Occupancy will be added to the E-permit
