Building Division

The purpose of the Building Division is to further the protection of general life, health, and safety through the administration of the International Code Council and the City's development regulations.

We also are responsible for reviewing building plans and issuing permits to ensure the project is safe and meets all building codes. The City of Aberdeen is currently under the 2018 International Codes. 

Permitting Needs

For all permitting needs please visit the permit center
