Virtual Inspections

VuSpex Banner with Inspection Background

If you’re building in Polk County, inspections are about to get a lot more convenient when VuSpex launches in February.

VuSpex is a new software tool that will allow contractors to connect with Polk County inspectors quickly and more powerfully than ever before, all while seamlessly integrating with existing Accela software. The new software program will be available starting Feb. 2, 2021.

VuSpex allows contractors to schedule virtual inspections, provide pictures, videos, or request video conferences to complete inspections. VuSpex uses audio, video, and GPS locations that will save contractors time and money.

At launch, VuSpex will be available for contractors to complete virtual inspections for the following types of permits on existing structures:

  • HVAC change-outs
  • Electrical service repairs and change-outs
  • Water heater change-outs
  • Window and door change-outs
  • Re-roof
  • Pre-fabricated sheds

In the coming months, Polk County’s Building Division will provide updates on VuSpex, which will include training opportunities and instructional videos. Staff will be available to provide training classes to help contractors familiarize themselves with VuSpex and the virtual inspection process.
