The St. Albans Building Department issues permits for approximately $5 million worth of construction costs annually, and it is department policy to make every effort to assist citizens, both inside and outside of the office with any problem or question they may have. Services offered by the Building Department include:


  • The Zoning Board of Adjustment
  • Floodplain determination
  • Issuance of permits and inspections of all construction (single family homes, commercial buildings, fences, swimming pools, storage sheds, re-roofs and other construction)
  • Review of site plans and building plans
  • Issuance of Certificate of Occupancies to new businesses

Contractor registrations are issued to assure that the contractor hired is licensed by the State of West Virginia and the City of St. Albans and has the proper insurance coverage to protect both the citizens and contractor's employees. Building Department personnel are committed to ensuring that construction methods used meet the standards of state law and city ordinances.
