Welcome to the Grant County Building Department
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
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.
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.
look forward to assisting you and will be happy
to provide any additional or specific information
not referenced herein.
The Building Department'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.
