Building Division

The Building Division is responsible for building permits, contractor registration, and certificates of occupancy.

This division ensures all construction, including improvements to private property, complies with the building codes and ordinances adopted by the Village of Bolingbrook. The process generally involves permit application submittal, plan review, and inspections.

Building codes are a minimum standard protecting property, life, health, and public welfare, by ensuring buildings and construction projects meet a quality standard set for all properties in the Village of Bolingbrook.

Permits are required for a variety of construction projects, such as new construction, renovations, additions, alterations, and repairs, and must be obtained prior to the start of any work, regardless of whether the work is completed by a property owner or contractor.

If you have questions regarding a repair or project you are about to take on, please feel free to contact Building Division at any time. We are open Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
