Whether you are building new construction, remodeling a structure, adding an accessory structure to your property (such as a shed, fence, pool, deck, storm shelter etc.), or infilling into an existing commercial space, most construction projects will require a building permit. Permits are required to ensure that structures in Nixa are built correctly per city building codes for safety. Our city planners and building inspectors will review your construction plans and check the progress of the project to ensure it is built properly not only on behalf of the current property owner, but to ensure that minimum safety and quality standards were met as a reassurance to your neighbors and any future buyer of the property.
Construction in The City of Nixa must follow:
- 2018 International Building Codes
- 2017 National Electric Codes
Once you’ve received your building permit, you will need to contact us when you are ready to schedule your building inspection(s). You may do so from our Building Inspection Scheduling online form, or by calling the Inspection Scheduling Hotline at 417-724-5775
