Building Services


As of Monday, March 23, all City facilities will continue to remain closed to the public through Sunday, April 12, 2020. This closure includes, but is not limited to, public business and activities at City Hall, including in-person building permitting and contractor licensing services. Online permitting through will be available during this time and we will process permit applications as quickly as possible however, due to reduced staffing, delays should be expected.  During this time inspections will be limited to inspections needed to restore electrical and gas utilities and inspections related to new construction. We will not be performing inspections to existing homes during this time. If you have questions, please email us at and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

At the City of Arvada, the Building Inspection Division seeks to ensure that buildings are safe. In order to protect the safety of our citizens and visitors, we utilize and enforce international building, energy, residential, fire, and related codes. An advisory board, comprised of engineers, architects, and local business owners, helps to make sure that the City’s interpretation and application of these codes is appropriate for our community.

The Building Services includes:
