New Building Inspections Mobile App Makes it Quick and Simple to Book Inspections
As part of its priority to ensure an efficient and dependable business environment, the City of Reno’s latest mobile application makes the process of scheduling and managing building inspections faster and easier.
The new Reno Building Inspections mobile app, released in February 2018, allows contractors and homeowners to request inspections on their active Reno permits with just a few clicks.
Through the app, you can:
- Quickly schedule multiple inspections of an active permit without a log-in.
- Cancel or reschedule an inspection.
- Use your smartphone to view all your Reno building and fire permits, inspection results, and inspection history
- Easily view your permits by adding them to MyList.
“Our Building and Safety team is dedicated to providing a prompt and efficient customer experience. This new app is a continuation of that commitment,” Building and Safety Manager Dan Holly said. “Through the Reno Building Inspections app, we expect to save customers time by making it quick and easy to schedule and manage their inspections.”
The new app replaces the automated phone inspection request line. The inspection request phone number (775-334-2396) printed on the back of building permits issued approximately before January 9, 2018 is no longer in use.
Customers can also use the OneNV website for building inspection and permit needs. Check out the OneNV information page to learn more.
