On a second note; filling out the permit application completly, and legiably will be a great help.
As to 'showing-up; if the EC/HO calls btwn 7:30-8:00 AM, we both will give a 'ballpark' time
Now, I have ran into the 15 story office bldg, no clue where the job is; the 1 mil sq ft warehouse, and the house without the #
the wrong street, etc.
As an EC, I also have wasted numerous hours, and a whole bunch of futility waiting for an AHJ that never showed; having 300' of 3' wide, 4' deep trench still open at 3:30PM.....still waiting, etc.
I see both sides of the fence for the last 3 years, and it's tough on both sides guys.
(Min of 15 insp tickets a day, from a furnace (resi) to oh yes, the 250k to 1M SF warehouse, dist ctr, regional mall, and a lot more.)
How about "2 recept" in MACY's Dept Store???
