Welcome to the Grant County Building Department


Grant County is committed to ensuring that our built environment is regulated to the extent that provides the requirements to safeguard the public safety, health and general welfare in our homes, schools, places of worship, public and private structures, agricultural buildings and a variety of other structures

On a daily basis we all have a reasonable expectation that the structures we live or work in or use for shopping, entertainment, worship or other purposes, meet minimum standards structurally, for fire/life safety, for health and comfort.  The majority of the time this expectation is subconscious, we simply expect that we can enter and exit buildings safely, that smoke detection and automatic sprinklers are installed and operable where required, and that buildings won't just collapse around us.

To that end, the Grant County Building Department enforces the provisions of RCW 19.27, the Washington St. Building Code and employs International Code Council certified building inspectors and plans examiners to ensure that construction documents are reviewed and demonstrate conformance with the code, that permits are issued and inspections are conducted throughout the various phases of construction so that the end result is to provide buildings that may be used safely and securely by current and future generations.

We look forward to assisting you and will be happy to provide any additional or specific information not referenced herein.
