userway ADA
The Building Division ensures construction of safe structures for the enjoyment of citizens and visitors in unincorporated Eagle County. Staff implements construction codes through Permits which go through plan review and inspections. Eagle County is currently enforcing the 2015 I-Codes and the 2020 NEC with plans to adopt the 2021 I-codes near the end of 2024.

When is a permit required? A building permit is required when alterations, additions or demolitions are made to an existing building or when any new construction is undertaken. Normal building maintenance does not require a building permit in most instances. Separate permits for plumbing, mechanical, and electrical work are also required when applicable.
