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 (architect or engineer). The construction plans must be signed and stamped by the design professional (architect or engineer).
