BUILDING CODES

Welcome

Welcome to the Rutherford County Building Codes Department website. The primary focus and the purpose of building codes is to protect public health, safety and welfare as they relate to the construction and occupancy of buildings and structures. The codes are sets of regulations governing the design, construction, alteration and maintenance of structures.

The Rutherford County Building Codes Department provides permitting, plans review, inspection, codes enforcement, property maintenance enforcement and zoning enforcement to the citizens of Rutherford County. We play an integral role in creating a sustainable future for our citizens through building standards and safety, working alongside our builders and the general public negotiating the adopted codes, county regulations and procedures.

This website is full of helpful information if you are considering a construction project at your home. If the information within this website does not answer all your questions, I encourage you to call our office anytime between 8:00am and 4:30pm to speak with myself, an inspector or any member of our staff. Thank you for visiting and we welcome any comments or suggestions you may have to make our website navigational for you and ultimately for others.
