Explanation: A certificate of occupancy will be issued at the completion of a construction project upon presentation of all final inspection sign-offs. This is required before it can be used for business or residential. Inspections are performed to ensure that all the building codes for the type of usage have been adhered to and are conforming.
I've done many walk-throughs of new construction projects that are in their final stage of completion and are awaiting the building inspector to check off the inspections before issuing a certificate of occupancy. The site below is one of many that cite codes and requirements for certificate of occupancy in many states. Hope this is helpful. AWatts
Explanation: Sorry to answer so late, but I have just come across this question looking for something else.
No need to say works or completion. The above is what is used.
Please see a previous answer explaining about certificates.
a final certificate is the certificate issued by the architect at final completion. It entitles the builder to payment of the final account including the second half of the retention sum. (Dictionary of Building by Maclean and Scott)
