Building Codes

The Baldwin County Commission has adopted and enforces the International Code Series as noted below as of May 21, 2019:

  • National Electric Code, 2017 for Commercial Buildings and Residential Buildings containing more than two (2) dwelling units

Should any of the above-adopted codes have a minimum requirement that is in conflict, the more restrictive requirement will prevail and will be required.

NOTE: All new construction (including alterations) must have all structural components designed by an Alabama licensed design professional. The construction plans must be signed and stamped by the design professional.
