Building Services

Welcome to the City of Coronado's Building Services Division.

The Building Services Division's mission is multi-dimensional. We are here to:
  • Ensure that all structures in Coronado - both commercial and residential - conform with the current construction standards of the State of California Building Codes;
  • Ensure that all structures in Coronado - both commercial and residential - conform with the health and safety standards of the State of California Building Codes; and
  • Ensure that all citizens of Coronado are provided with the information they need to prepare, submit, and permit plans and documents for their construction projects.
In light of COVID-19, the Community Development Department is encouraging the community, consultants and partners to conduct business with City Hall remotely.  Those who require help from building or planning officials are being asked to make appointments by emailing  [email protected] or calling (619) 522-7326.

The following is the Essential Worker Precautions and Protocol now in force for Community Development:

1. Inspections will continue as needed, but inspections pertaining to life, safety and continued habitancy will be prioritized. Inspections beyond those categories may be  subject to  postponement. Any request will need to be resubmitted through the standard inspection request protocol.

2. Inspections in occupied homes and commercial job sites  MUST be cleared of occupants with the exception of one chaperone (contractor or owner-builder) to accompany the inspector during inspection.

3. If anyone is observed by the inspector to be ill, the inspector has the ability to  postpone the  inspections until the ill person has left the area of the inspection.

4. Proper social distancing must be observed with inspectors, and if not,  the inspector has the ability to postpone inspection until proper precautions are in place.

5. Masks shall be worn by the inspectors and anyone on the job site must also be wearing a protective mask who is to assist in the inspection or interact with the inspector. Failure to wear protective masks will result in postponement of the  inspection.

Community Development would like to thank the residents, builders, consultants and contractors for your cooperation.
