Building Review Board

The Building Review Board (BRB) is charged with the responsibility to hear appeals and requests for variances related to the Fort Collins building codes and contractor licensing regulations.

The BRB hearing provides a formal recourse to building permit and contractor license applicants who disagree with an interpretation or ruling by the Fort Collins Building Official. The BRB is authorized to rule in favor of the applicant and to approve alternative building methods and materials that are not specifically prescribed in the building codes. This Board may also revoke or suspend a contractor license when it determines that a licensee has violated the building codes or licensing rules. In an advisory capacity, the BRB makes recommendations to City Council concerning the revision of existing codes or the adoption of new building codes and contractor regulations.
