New Construction Inspections

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Community Safety Division is open for permit payments from 8-10 a.m. Monday through Friday (except holidays).

Payment Option Instructions:

    • Applicants may remit payment by credit card by calling (970) 962-2497 between 8 and 10 am Monday through Friday and pay the permit fees by phone.

    • Applicants may remit payment in person by check or credit card by coming to the Community Safety Division office between 8 and 10 a.m. Monday through Friday.

    • Applicants may mail a check to: Loveland Fire Rescue Authority, Attn: Community Safety Division, 410 E. 5th St., Loveland, CO 80537

Once payment is received, LFRA will email the permit inspection card and the LFRA-stamped permit drawings to the applicant. The applicant is responsible for printing one copy each of the permit conditions and inspection card, and having both on site. As usual, the LFRA-stamped drawings can be on site either digitally (using a tablet or other electronic device) or in printed form.

 

Fire-Protection Systems Rough Inspections

Fire sprinkler rough and hydrostatic inspections are required. The fire sprinkler contractor calls LFRA to schedule rough/hydrostatic inspections, at (970) 962-2537, at least 48 hours in advance of the requested inspection time.

 

Final Inspections

Final inspections consisting of general construction and fire-protection systems (sprinkler, alarm, commercial kitchen suppression, flammable finish operations) must be scheduled for the same time and all contractors must be present for testing and inspecting. The general contractor is responsible for scheduling this final inspection and he/she must provide the project address and all permit numbers when requesting inspections. Inspections must be scheduled at least 48 hours in advance by calling LFRA at (970) 962-2537. Contacting LFRA further in advance will allow more flexibility in scheduling for the contractor(s).

Final inspections for only fire-suppression systems (there is no associated building permit) may be scheduled by the fire-protection contractor. Inspections must be scheduled at least 48 hours in advance by calling LFRA at (970) 962-2537.

All LFRA inspections must be completed and approved prior to closing the permits, in order for the applicable Building Department to issue a Certificate of Occupancy or Temporary Certificate of Occupancy.
