Elevator Inspection Program
In the latter part of 2011 the City of Thornton was informed by Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG) that they were terminating their long standing elevator inspection program. Since that time the City of Thornton, Building Inspection Division has been diligently working to fill this gap in our inspection service.
*We are very pleased to announce that we have contracted with Colorado Code Consulting, LLC (CCC) to perform our elevator inspections. CCC has put together an outstanding staff of inspectors to continue to provide you with twice yearly inspections. All of their elevator inspectors are ASME QEI Certified Conveyance Inspectors with numerous years of field experience not only in inspecting elevators but as installers and maintenance personnel.*
In working with Colorado Code Consulting we were able to maintain the twice a year inspection with no fee increase for 2012. The fee for your 2012 twice a year standard inspection remains at $235.00 per elevator. Your 2012 Certificate of Inspection will be issued upon receipt of payment.
