The Charter Township of Washington Building Department’s mission is to provide public safety regarding all construction and development projects within our community.

Our main objective is to assure building owners that their structure is sound and safe while assuring all building users that their safety and welfare are protected by enforcement of the State of Michigan’s Building, Electrical, Mechanical and Plumbing Codes.  All of our inspectors apply consistent and uniform building standards throughout the Township.

Permits are required for all new construction for commercial and residential projects. Included in these requirements are roofs, interior remodels, additions, accessory buildings, decks, patios, in ground/above ground pools, furnaces, air conditioners, generators, hot water tanks, and zoning permits for fences and sheds.

Please refer to our Building Department Form Page on this website for permit applications and requirements for specific permits or contact the Building Department for further information.
