Building Code Modification Process
The Virginia Uniform Statewide Building Code has given authority to the Prince William County Building Official to grant modifications to any provisions of the Virginia Uniform Statewide Building Code, provided the spirit and intent of the code are observed, and the public's health, welfare, and safety are assured.
A Code Modification Request must be submitted with adequate supporting technical data. Fees are charged according to the approved Building Development Fee Schedule. (Note that we currently only accept cash or checks.)
The Code Modification Request may be submitted in person at the Building Development offices or mailed to:
Building Development Division
Department of Development Services
5 County Complex Court, Suite 120
Prince William, VA 22192
