Mission Statement
The Building Codes Department will work to ensure sound construction of new buildings, promote steady maintenance of existing structures, and enforce regulation development practices in accordance with the S.C. Building Code and Local Land Use Regulations.

This will be accomplished by expediting the permit and inspection process without compromising the public health, safety, and general welfare to life and property from fire and other hazards attributed to the built environment.

The County Building Codes Department will estimate your permit fees after the following information is provided:
  • Building Use
  • Type of Construction
  • Square Footage
  • Total Cost

Indicate if your project is a new building, addition, or interior up fit of existing building.
