What We Do
We provide consultation, plan review, and inspection in conformance with the Municipal Code and State Building Codes as they relate to residential, commercial, and industrial projects.
The mission of the Building Division is to oversee construction projects for the purpose of protecting the safety of Morro Bay’s citizens and facilitating sustainable development objectives.
New Energy Codes Effective July 1, 2014 for Construction Projects in Morro Bay
California's Building Energy Efficiency Standards are updated by the California Building Standards Commission on an approximately three-year cycle. The new 2013 Standards become effective on July 1st, 2014 and improve upon the current 2008 Standards for new construction, additions and alterations to residential and non-residential buildings.
Below is a Summary of Changes for the 2013 Residential Building Energy Efficiency Standards Measures from the California Energy Commission website.
