Our primary goal is to provide the best customer service possible. Whether we are serving our residents, building owners, design professionals, or tenants, we understand and agree that everyone deserves individual attention. With the addition of the Akron, Cuyahoga Falls, Silver Lake and Tallmadge Building Departments we will continue to streamline our policy and procedure process. As always, we welcome your questions, comments, and suggestions.
The County of Summit Division of Building Standards regulates the construction, demolition, and occupancy of buildings and structures within the Summit County jurisdiction, in order to protect the health, safety and welfare of our residents. Specifically, we review, approve, and issue all permits required by the State of Ohio, regarding the new construction, repair, alteration, or addition to all public and private buildings and structures, as well as annually register all construction contractors; including general building trades, electrical, mechanical, and plumbing.
