Upcoming Inspection Delays: In order to meet requirements for continuing education on the Fire Code, some CSD staff members will be attending the 34th Annual Colorado Educational Institute of the International Code Council, from March 4-8 in Denver. While these classes enable us to better serve the community, please know there may be a delay in scheduling inspections or getting questions answered that week. We apologize for any inconvenience.
New Construction Inspections
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.
Rough inspections for fire alarm wiring are required and are completed by the applicable Building Departments: City of Loveland, the Loveland Rural Fire Protection District in unincorporated Larimer County, or Town of Johnstown. The fire alarm contractor is responsible for contacting the appropriate Building Department for rough alarm wiring inspections. Rough wiring inspection approval is required prior to final fire alarm inspection by LFRA.
- City of Loveland Building Division: (970) 962-2346
- Larimer County Building Department: (970) 498-7700
- Town of Johnstown Building Department: (970) 587-4664
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.
