Building Department

The Greenville Building Department is responsible for administering and enforcing all Building Officials and Code Association (BOCA) and city building codes. Our building inspectors ensure that all structures within the City are constructed safely and related property is maintained according to minimum code standards. The mission is carried out through the effective enforcement of codes for Building, Electrical, Mechanical, Plumbing, Property Maintenance and Signs. These standards are used to measure the quality of new construction, the structural integrity of existing structures and sanitary conditions of buildings and exterior property areas.
