Welcome Message

If you are a builder, homeowner, design professional or contractor, you can find key documents here that may help you to speed up the process of building, designing or remodeling in the community. We hope that these web pages will also encourage the general public to learn more about the building procedures and activities that help us to make Puyallup such a fine place to live, work and do business.

Building Services is well known in the building industry as having one of the most qualified staffs. As an example among our seven technical staff members, we have garnered many professional certifications - - each of them requiring successful completion of a four hour exam. This kind of educational effort put forth by our staff results in better customer service to the public. With this level of expertise, Building Services can accurately and quickly assist developers, architects, engineers, builders and you to design projects so that they meet all applicable State of Washington codes.

Working with the construction industry as a partner to develop Puyallup is what we are all about, and you are invited to use this website at your convenience to help with your building needs.
