Building

The Building Division's function is to implement and enforce regulations relating to the design, construction, use and occupancy of buildings and structures located within this jurisdiction, along with the plumbing and mechanical associated with those structures.

Building Division Overview

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

To that end, the Grant County Building Department enforces the provisions of RCW 19.27, the Washington State 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.

Special Note

Requirements for applying, permitting, construction and inspections are subject to change at any time based on local, state and federal law or policy, building code cycles and such. What was required or allowed last year may be different next year.

All information provided to you with your application, permit and plans are important. Please be sure to thoroughly familiarize yourself with the information provided as you (the applicant) are responsible to meet all requirements.
