Building & Construction
The Building Division is responsible for implementing Council-adopted by-laws and policies through commercial and residential building plan reviews, and the administration of building, electrical, plumbing, tree permits and inspection services.
The Building Division provides the public and the building industry with high quality services such that buildings constructed in the City conform to the requirements of the British Columbia Building Code, Zoning and Building By-laws, Land Use Contracts, and Development Permits, and are safe for their intended purpose. The Building Division also provides professional advice to Council, Board of Variance, other City Departments, and the public on building-related matters.
