Effective May 20, 2021, the Building Inspection Service is happy to announce that we will no longer require COVID-19 Job Site Safety Plans. Should this change, we will re-post those forms on this webpage for your convenience. Thank you for working over this past year, during COVID, to ensure our Inspectors and your workers have remained safe. We hope you, your families, and your co-workers remain healthy but remember, IF YOU ARE SICK STAY HOME! If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to us. Thanks and stay well.
As part of Frisco, Colorado’s Community Development Department, the Building Division administers the building permit process and reviews projects according to adopted building construction codes. The Building Division works closely with the Planning Division and all projects must obtain both Planning and Building approval. Sometimes this approval will require two separate applications; please look at the Planning Department’s applications page to see if your project requires a separate application.
The building permit process is organized to help ensure projects meet minimum standards for safeguarding health, safety, property, and public welfare as those buildings are used and occupied. The process includes reviewing designs and plans for compliance with adopted codes, issuing permits that authorize approved work, inspecting new construction for compliance with approved plans and adopted codes, and issuing Certificates of Occupancy authorizing use and occupancy of buildings.
The adopted building construction codes are developed as the minimum requirements to safeguard the public health, safety, and general welfare. These safeguards are in the forms of requirements structural strength, stability, adequate means of egress, sanitation, adequate light and ventilation, energy conservation, and safety to life and property from fire and other hazards attributed to the built environment.
Please note that the Town of Frisco Building Department accepts credit/debit cards for all permit fees.

When an application and plans are turned in and the plan review fees are paid, the Building Department will assign online all Agencies having jurisdiction and are required to approve various stages of the project. It is the responsibility of the project owner or contractor of record to contact those agencies (obtaining online approval/“sign-off”). Approvals from these agencies may require the project owner to submit plans, obtain separate permits, and pay additional fees at each agency.
