Head Building Officials are key to local government sales and marketing success. These decision makers have two primary responsibilities – the issuance of building permits and the inspection of buildings to ensure that they comply with building codes.


To qualify as a Head Building Official in Power Almanac, the person must perform one or more of the following primary responsibilities:

  • The issuance of building permits for the construction, alteration, repair, moving, or demolition of commercial and residential buildings within a local government’s borders.
  • The inspection of buildings within the local government’s borders to ensure and enforce compliance with all building codes.

Reporting Structure and Occurrence

  • Most local governments have a Building function. If the Building function is performed by more than one person, then they may be organized into a “department” or “division” e.g. the Building Department.
