Professional staff and inspectors are tasked with overseeing the construction and maintenance of safe buildings and dwellings in the City of Raleigh’s jurisdiction. We strive to ensure the public's health, safety, and welfare through the enforcement of adopted codes, to promote the economic health of the City of Raleigh by enhancing business development and retention, assuring adequate housing and clean neighborhoods.
If commercial buildings are not properly maintained, they can have a negative impact on the surrounding neighborhoods and businesses. The City of Raleigh has a Non-Residential Building Code that regulates commercial structures that have structural and safety issues. This code addresses interior, exterior and property maintenance standards. The code also includes enforcement tools such as repair, vacate or demolition orders and civil penalties against non-compliant property owners.
