Building Development Division / Building Permits & Construction

The Building Development Division (BDD) of the Department of Development Services enforces the Virginia Uniform Statewide Building Code to ensure the buildings in which we live, work and play are safe. We are only one of many steps in the building construction process, and we deal specifically with reviewing building construction plans and specifications, issuing building construction permits, performing critical building construction inspections, and ensuring building code compliance.  If you would like information on the Land and Site Development process, visit Land Development Division.
