Building and Code Enforcement Division

Overview

The Building and Code Enforcement Division of the Community Development Department ensures timely review and issuance of permits, inspection services and uniform enforcement of all Village ordinances, codes and regulations relating to new construction of buildings and structures including improvements and repair, alteration and demolition of existing buildings and structures.

In order to sustain a long-term investment in the community, the Village of Deerfield has adopted building codes published by the International Code Council www.iccsafe.org along with other ordinances and development standards. These standards have been adopted to protect the general public, businesses, and property owners of the community and to ensure public safety and welfare throughout the Village. The following building codes have been adopted by ordinance:

  • 2006 International Building Code (IBC)
  • 2006 International Residential Code ( IRC)
  • 2006 International Plumbing Code (IPC)
  • 2006 International Mechanical Code (IMC)
  • 2006 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC)
  • 2006 International Fire Code (IFC)
  • 2006 International Fuel Gas Code (IFGC)
  • 2006 International Property Maintenance Code (IPMC)
  • 2005 National Electrical Code (NEC)

The Building Division is instrumental in coordinating with other Village departments in the implementation of projects throughout the Village. The department also issues contractors licenses and semi-annual elevator inspection certificates. In addition, staff provides assistance to the Board of Building Appeals, Board of Zoning Appeals, Electrical Commission and other commissions as requested.
