Building Division

Effective February 1, 2021, Washington State has implemented the 2018 Building Codes and Washington State Energy Code.


The Building Division of the City of Sunnyside is responsible for issuing permits for: building, plumbing, mechanical, fire code, signs and performing inspections. The Building Division is a one-stop shop which regulates the construction, repair or alteration, demolition, and occupancy of all buildings and structures within the city.

While safety is our primary mission, we want to ensure that your building is energy efficient; provides a comfortable, healthy atmosphere through modern ventilation techniques; and is accessible to all persons with disabilities.


Our goal is to accomplish this by demonstrating problem-solving abilities and administering the codes in an unbiased and consistent manner, while providing quality customer service to everyone.
