The Building Inspection Division wants you to build right - that means meeting the latest safety standards! We follow Virginia's Uniform State Building Code, which sets standards for the construction and installation of all buildings, structures and related equipment. Whether you are building a commercial or residential structure, the following forms and documents apply to your project. (If you are building an agricultural structure, click on the Agricultural Structure Exemption link under “Other Documents That May Apply to a Permit.”)
OTHER DOCUMENTS THAT MAY APPLY TO A PERMIT
Click on this link for forms that may apply to your commercial or residential structure, depending on the nature of the project. For example, you will need to click on the Land Disturbance link if you are building anything other than a single-family house. You may need Temporary Electric Service during your construction process. Or, you may be building in a subdivision with special homeowner association requirements. Scan the full list to see if any of these items may apply to your project.
