Building Official

The Building Official administers the building and construction regulations and associated laws of the Commonwealth and County, in a courteous, responsive, and professional manner, contributing to the safety, well being and general interest of citizens.

Services include:

County Inspectors do not act as project managers or job site superintendents for construction projects. They inspect for minimum compliance with Virginia law, but we do not inspect for aesthetic of contractual compliance.
