Building Inspection Division

Welcome to the Building Inspection Division

The Building Inspection Division is responsible for ensuring that new construction, renovation, and other improvements to structures in the City of Aiken conform to the requirements of the International Building and Fire Code. To protect the public’s safety and the integrity of the property owner’s investment, the Division issues permits for construction to contractors who are properly licensed and then conducts on site inspections during construction to ensure code compliance. Upon completion of construction, the Building Official issues a Certificate of Occupancy to allow a building or residence to be permanently occupied.

The Building Inspection Division is also responsible for the ensuring that existing residential and commercial structures and their premises in the City of Aiken conform to the requirements of the International Property Maintenance Code and to City of Aiken codes that ensure public health, safety, and welfare. These codes also address structures that are substandard for living conditions or structures that are dilapidated and need to be demolished. The Division staff includes a Property Code Enforcement Officer who enforces the code through prevention, detection, and investigation of potential property maintenance issues.
