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.”)
