Building Code

Code Adoption

A primary responsibility of the Routt County Building Department is to ensure that structures built throughout the County are built safely. This is done through inspection and code enforcement activity using Internationally-adopted standards. These include the International Building Code, International Residential Code, International Plumbing Code, International Mechanical Code, International Fuel Gas Code, International Existing Building Code and International Energy Conservation Code and the state-adopted National Electrical Code.
