The Building Division is charged with the administration and enforcement of the building codes adopted by the State of Washington as amended by the Edmonds City Council. The adopted codes and regulations serve to protect life and property by governing the City's built environments. Our goal is to fulfill these responsibilities in a manner which provides facilitative service to the community, citizens and our customers.

The Building Division staff reviews construction plans, issues permits and performs inspections of residential and commercial projects within the City. This is done to help ensure that projects are designed and constructed in keeping with the currently adopted regulations including building, mechanical, plumbing, fire, and energy codes.
