The Town of Mount Pleasant enforces state adopted building codes as well as a zoning and municipal ordinances. These codes and ordinances require a permit to construct, enlarge, repair, move, demolish or change the occupancy of any building or structure. A permit is also required to erect, install, enlarge, alter, repair, remove, convert or replace any electrical, gas, mechanical or plumbing system. The Building Inspection Division reviews construction plans for all residential and commercial development, including additions and renovations. Field inspectors ensure compliance with Town building codes and zoning ordinances throughout the construction process. In addition to building permits, Certificates of Occupancy of Complete are issued by this Division.
 
Questions about if your project requires a permit? The answer is most likely Yes! However only one of our Plan Reviewers is qualified to answer that question. Please contact us with details on your project and what permits is any may be required.

The primary objective of the Building Inspection Division is to protect the public's safety, and welfare as it relates to construction while providing quality service to the Community we serve.  In 2013, the Town of Mount Pleasant, S.C., earned building department accreditation by the International Accreditation Service (IAS) for its strong commitment to community, quality and efficiency. The community sought accreditation of its building department to demonstrate its comprehensive and quality approach to building and safety.

A recognized accreditation body since 1975, IAS is a nonprofit, public benefit corporation.
