About Us

The Office of Construction Review, a Division  of Codes and Regulations as of January 1, 2017, is responsible for oversight of construction in Louisville Metro through a review process that includes review of construction plans and issuance of permits and inspections. This process is in place to ensure the safety of citizens and compliance with the Kentucky Building Code and associated codes and ordinances. Construction Review issues building, HVAC/mechanical, electrical, fire detection, fire suppression, moving, tent, and wrecking permits.

In addition to issuing building permits and conducting inspections, our division oversees the licensure and inspections of boarding and lodging houses homeless shelters, transitional shelters, donation bins, and billboard licenses. 

Our department does not review plans or perform inspections within the city limits of Jeffersontown, Kentucky

The enforcement powers of the Construction Review Division are established by the Kentucky Building Code, through a contractual agreement with the State Department of Housing, Building and Construction and the Louisville Code of Ordinances, Chapter 150.
