South Main Street
The Building Code Official manages the daily operations of the Building, Fire and Code Administration Office under the direction of the Mayor and City Administrator and enforces the current Pennsylvania State Uniformed Construction Codes (UCC).  In addition to the building code responsibilities, the Code Official works directly with the Greensburg Volunteer Fire Department in developing and conducting community relations and fire education programs, and assists with investigations in cooperation with police and fire department authorities in suspected crimes relating to fire and safety hazards. 

Building, Fire and Code Administration Office:
Under the direction of the Building Code Official, two Certified Inspectors perform various State required building inspections, as well as, the inspection and issuance of Health Licenses to food-related operations within the City limits of the City of Greensburg.  Plan reviews and specialized inspections required by the State Uniform Construction Code are pconducted by Code.Sys of Pittsburgh, PA or CEA Code Enforcement Agency of Elizatbeth, PA.   Most work in the City requiring inspections also requires plans prepared and sealed by a registered design professional, currently registered in Pennsylvania. Contact our office if you have questions whether your office requires a design professional.

RESIDENTIAL PROJECTS:  Residential projects can be dropped off at the Code Administration office and they will be picked up by a representative of Code.Sys or CEA Code Enforcement Agnecy for plan review.  Once you have approved plans from one of the 3rd Party Plan Reviewers, you may apply for a permit at the City's Code Administration Office.  See the Building Permit form below.

COMMERCIAL PROJECTS:   First, you must send your plans directly to Code.Sys, 321 Grant Ave., Pittsburgh, PA  15209 or to CEA Code Enforcement Agency, P.O. Box 103, Elizabeth, PA  15037.  Separate fees apply for Code.Sys or CEA reviews.  Said fees are the responsibility of the applicant.  Please go to www.code-sys.com or www.ceacodes.com and click on plan review for commercial to see their application form for submission requirements for your review.  Once you have received approved plans from one of the 3rd Party Reviewers, you may apply for a permit at the City's Code Administration Office.  See the Building Permit form below. 

In addition to inspections, the office fields complaints and provides follow-up to property maintenance deficiencies of both residential and commercial properties.
