Functions & Responsibilities
The Building Department oversees building and related construction activities to protect the public health, safety and welfare of our residents and visitors pursuant to uniform construction codes governing land use and code enforcement (as established in North Bend Municipal Code 20.10).
The City of North Bend enforces the International Codes, Washington State Amendments and Washington Administrative Code (WAC), all as adopted in NBMC Title 15 - Buildings and Construction. The Construction Administrative Code as set forth in NBMC 15.02 replaces the International Code Council (ICC) administrative chapters of the adopted codes.
A free online version of the International Codes is available by visiting the ICC website and hard copy of the code books can be purchased by visiting the WABO Bookstore. Both of these versions of the Code do not include any amendments specific to Washington State. To check Washington State amendments to building codes please visit the Washington State Building Code website.
