Building in Beaverton takes many shapes. From small residential projects such as a new structure on your property, an updated bathroom, landscape upgrades or new fencing, to large scale multi-family residential projects and commercial projects. Regardless of what you have planned, we are here to help you navigate the city’s requirements and finish your construction or remodeling project as quickly as possible.

Our goal is to provide consistent service to our customers while supporting community aspirations and plans. 

Getting Started

Apply Electronically

Most construction and remodeling projects will need approval from the city in the form of an application or permit, sometimes from more than one city department depending on the project. The city is required to ensure projects developed within the city meet local and state rules and regulations. Other outside agencies may also require review and approval as applicable. 

Please see the ‘Building in Beaverton Apply’ pages for instructions, permit applications, associated fees required for your project, and options for submitting electronically.
