The State Building Code has been adopted by Greenbrier County. This means that proper building permits must be in place before any type of construction can begin. The building code is available for viewing and downloading on our web site.
All plans submitted shall be reviewed for code compliance under the following codes:
The following information must be submitted with your plans for review. Building permits will not be issued without plan review approval.
Greenbrier County Health Department approvals will be needed (i.e., septic permit number and well permit number), as well as WVDOH driveway permits, if applicable. Some major excavating work may require a NPDES permit from the State.
We need a completed application for permit, 3 sets of plans or construction drawings, at least 1 site plan showing property lines, proposed driveway, footprint of proposed building and existing building, if any, direction of slope or site elevations, erosion control and surface drainage details.
We need 3 sets of civil plans with site plans, demolition plans, if any, structural plans, electrical, plumbing, mechanical, elevations, sprinkler drawings, elevations, parking, storm water, erosion control drawings, spec books or other drawings that pertain to the project. The completed application should be completed in full with contact numbers for the owner, designers or contractors. Plans should indicate the use group, construction type, square footage, occupancy load and other calculations. All dimensions, ADA accessibility items. All jobs over $50,000 must have plans certified by a registered design professional with the State of West Virginia.
All demolition permits must have a copy of asbestos testing report and findings attached to the permit. If asbestos abatement is required, it should be removed by using safe work practices by qualified workers.
