To build a house in the City of Arvada, a permit must be obtained. Applications are available at the Building Inspection Division at City Hall, 8101 Ralston Road. Visit www.arvadapermits.org to access the necessary permit online. Permit applications may be submitted by either a contractor licensed by the City of Arvada or by an owner, who is building his/her own home to occupy. When submitted, the permit application shall be accompanied by detailed information. A handout with additional details is available at the Building Inspection Division or online at www.arvada.org. For a new home, the general permit authorizes work for structural, plumbing, mechanical and electrical construction. As the structure is being built, inspections will be done to confirm the structure is being built to accepted standards of health and safety. When the structure is complete, all inspections done, fees paid, and any requirements from other departments met, a Certificate of Occupancy will be issued. The home may not be used or occupied until a valid Certificate of Occupancy has been issued. Additional information can be obtained at the Building Inspection Division in person Monday through Friday, 8:00am to 5:00pm, by submitting a service request, or by phone at 720-898-7620.
