Building Codes

Building Codes issues construction permits within the city limits of Gallatin. This process typically includes plan review, permit issuance, and inspection of projects from the ground up.
  
The Department is also responsible for the adoption of codes relating to plumbing, electrical, mechanical and structural for both new and existing construction.

*****NOTICE*****

The Building Codes Department took over structural gas line permitting and inspections in the Gallatin Public Utilities service area beginning April 1, 2020.  To pull a gas piping permit, you must have one of the following licenses:  CMC, CMC-A, CMC-C, or CMC-J.  You can apply for a CMC-J license without an exam at core.tn.gov .

We have postponed our gas piping class, but you can click a link below to view the presentation from the class.
