Who We Are
Welcome to the City of Santa Clarita’s Building & Safety Division. Our team of professional architects, engineers, inspectors, and friendly support staff is dedicated to providing the highest level of plan review and inspection services to our community.
Before a building is constructed, repaired or altered, the property owner is responsible for obtaining a building permit. A building permit provides the owner, insurance company, and public assurance that specific construction standards are in compliance with California State Building Codes and local ordinances. These standards are intended to protect the integrity of the buildings and the welfare of the community.
Fairness, equality, and the highest standard of professional ethics are our goal in providing our services to the community. The successful completion of your project is important to the City of Santa Clarita and we will work closely with you to that end.
