The City of Pickerington Building Department is located at 51 East Columbus Street in Olde Town Pickerington and includes inspection and plans examination functions. We are here to serve the community by answering questions, meeting with property owners to help them understand the requirements of the building code, reviewing plans, issuing permits, and inspecting structures to ensure they are safe for human occupancy.


Ordinances & Codes

The City of Pickerington adopts local laws called ordinances.  These ordinances are codified into a numbered structure to make it easier to organize, find, understand, and change.  In addition to these local ordinances, the State of Ohio has laws and rules which local municipalities, like Pickerington, can adopt and enforce, such as the building codes.  Pickerington is certified by the Ohio Board of Building Standards to enforce both the 2013 Residential Code of Ohio and the 2017 Ohio Building Code.

For One-, Two-, and Three-family residences, the statewide building code is the 2013 Residential Code of Ohio and the 2014 National Electric Code, which are available online.

Effective November 1, 2017 all other buildings and structures are governed by the 2017 Ohio Building Code.  Applications submitted prior to November 1, 2017 are being reviewed under the 2011 Ohio Building Code.   Other current codes include the 2017 Ohio Mechanical Code and the 2017 Ohio Plumbing Code, which are all available online.  The 2017 National Electric Code is the current electrical code in Ohio.
