How Can We Help You?


Building Safety

Due to an overwhelming number of requests from home owners and businesses for an earthquake damage assessment, our department is temporarily changing the policy for new construction structural inspection time requests. Municipality of Anchorage structural inspectors will do inspections for permitted projects primarily between the hours of 8:00 am and 10:00 am Monday through Friday. This includes concrete inspections. Special requests will be considered when warranted. Once we get through the large demand for damage assessment inspections, normal inspection request policies will resume.
