Proposed 2015 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 2017 National Electrical Code.

These codes provide the foundation that design professionals, builders and tradespeople use in designing and building residential, commercial and industrial buildings. The codes come from years of expert-level dialogue and input and each code is periodically refreshed to reflect enhancements and changing practices.
