Building and Related Codes and Amendments

The Building Division of the Community and Economic Development Department is responsible for issuing building, plumbing, heating / cooling, and electrical permits. This also includes reviewing plans and conducting inspections for the work allowed under these permits.

The Building Division is also responsible for enforcing the State of Oregon Building Codes. These codes are the laws that regulate how a building is to be constructed, ranging from how strong the walls must be to how much insulation must be in them. The Building Division also assigns address numbers to new and existing properties when needed.


These administrative rules are adopted under authority of City of Beaverton Ordinance 3978 and shall apply to all applications for building permits received on or after the effective date of that ordinance and as to all work performed on buildings and building service equipment subject to the codes adopted by that ordinance on and after that effective date.
