County residents are the most important people that come into our office, whether in person, mail or on the phone we are dependent on them. The Building Department’s goal is to work with the residents of Weld County to help them achieve their goals while providing safety during and after the construction process.
The Weld County Building Code, as adopted, addresses the design and installation of buildings and structures through requirements which focus on safety, design control and construction quality.
