GCBA PRESS RELEASE Wednesday, March 18, 2020 10:00 pm
I first want to say I hope you are all well during these unknown days. We have entered uncharted waters in the wake of the COVID-19. First and foremost I know that this impacting all of us and want you to know we are here to try to support you in any way we can.
Grand County Builders Association understands that homebuilding is a cornerstone of our economy and your clients, suppliers, vendors and contractors count on us to keep moving forward in these times.
Your health, protection and overall success are of the most importance. I am working with the Emergency Response Team within Grand County and will provide any information that is relevant to our industry.
I am continuing to work with the building departments and below is a current update from the Winter Park Building Department and the Grand County Building Departments.
|Winter Park Building Department Current Status:
The Town of Winter Park is following the County directives and have secured Town Hall. Having said that, most of the building division business is conducted electronically for the past few years. With changes the Town(s) of Winter Park, Fraser and Granby made January 2017 by discontinuing paper submittals (occasional one offs) Town of Winter Park has increased efficiency and capacity, all without having to increase staffing level and it turns out avoided any disruption to our permitting and inspection processes during current conditions.
Once the plans have been received, accepted, reviewed and issued electronically, the applicant is simply notified by office staff to bring in a complete set of construction documents (paper) to be prepared by the building division for the field. Simply dropping them off in a secured area, and once prepared for the field, notified to pick them up an pay fees (which can be done by credit card also).
As for field operations, business as usual. Inspections are called in, loaded electronically, performed and resulted electronically precautions have been implemented by field staff to secure and completely clean the vehicles and equipment. Larger builders and larger job sites have established protocols and posting of job site(s) with the procedures to be followed. We avoid handshakes (nobody has taken this personal), ask questions of the jobsite(s) and if need be, re-schedule inspections to avoid situations that maybe questionable (the development and construction community are very conscience of the situation, a big thank you to the industries and trades).
