Inspections

The Building and Codes goal is to provide the best customer service·possible in regards to providing inspections for all of our builders, contractors and owner/builders. To request an inspection please contact the Building and Codes office at (843) 576-5259 before 3:00pm to have an inspection scheduled for the next business day. The work to be inspected must be ready when the request is made. Any calls made after 3:00pm will not be put on the schedule for the next business day, but will instead be listed for the next business day. Please remember that we will still seek to provide next day inspection service; however, work load and other circumstances may warrant inspections being moved to the following business day.

The Building & Codes Enforcement Department is involved in all phases of new construction undertaken in the City of Hanahan.

Once a project receives approval for its final inspections by all disciplines (Building, Electrical, Plumbing, Mechanical, Gas, Fire, Zoning, Engineering, D.C.C.. and Commissioners of Public Works), the electrical and gas meters are released to SCE&G or Berkeley Electric for connection to the structure. A construction Certificate of Occupancy is then issued for the structure.
