Building Services


The function of Building Services is to enforce the Virginia Uniform Statewide Building Code within Rockingham County. This includes plan review, permit issuance, and inspection of buildings and structures during the construction phase.


Our mission is to protect the lives and safety of the residents and visitors of the county, preserve quality of life, and contribute to economic development. The County achieves this by establishing and enforcing minimum requirements to safeguard the public health, safety and general welfare through structural strength, means of egress, stability, sanitation, adequate light and ventilation, energy conservation, systems efficiency, and property protection.
