PREFA CE
HISTORY, FUNCTION AND ADMINISTRATION OF THE BUILDING DEPARTMENT The Pik es Peak Regional Building Department is responsible for the plan rev iew, permitting, and inspection of all construction activ ity within the unincorporated areas of El Paso County as well as the participating incorporated municipalities within the county . These currently include the cities of Colorado Springs, Fountain and Manitou Springs and the towns of Green Mo untain Falls, Monument and Palmer Lak e. The department was formed by an intergov ernmental agreement between the City Council of Colorado Springs and the El Paso County Board of County Commissioners in 1966 to prov ide uniform serv ice to those two jurisdictions. Then, in 1982, the suburban jurisdictions entered into the same serv ice agreement with the department for the administration and enforcement of their building and construction codes. The primary function of the department is to preform plan rev iews, issue permits, and inspect construction work within the scope of the building, mechanical, plumbing, electrical, and elev ator codes and standards as well as enforce floodplain and enumeration regulations. The department also licenses and registers contracto rs who perform work within the jurisdictions serv ed by the department. The department is gov erned by the Regional Building Commission, a three-member gov erning body consisting of an El Paso County Commissioner, a Colorado Springs Councilperson and a representativ e from one of the fiv e suburban jurisdictions. The Building Commission is also responsible for approv al of the department budget. The department is self-funded by plan rev iew, permit, and licensing fees. A cost analy sis is performed annually by an independent auditor. Fee adjustments are proposed when the Building Commission determines them to be necessary to maintain the department‟s operation. LOCAL CODE AND ADOPTION PROCESS The code in effect for building construction or the installation of sy stems or equipment is this edition of the Pik es Peak Regional Building Code. This Code prov ides for the administration of the department, licensing an d registration of contractors, and enforcement of adopted model building codes and locally dev eloped standards. Sections of this Code are denoted by the prefix “RBC” to differentiate this Code from other codes. As new model building codes are dev eloped and published, the department rev iews these codes and updates the Pik es Peak Regional Building Code. New codes are promulgated approximately ev ery three y ears. The past ten y ears hav e seen a drastic change in model building codes in the United States. This ed ition of the Pik es Peak Regional Building Code is the second to cite and adopt a majority of the International Codes promulgated by the International Code Council (ICC). Proposed modifications to this Code may be made in writing to the Building Department during the official comment period. Comments are forwarded to the appropriate adv isory committee for consideration. The adv isory committees then undertak e a rev iew process of each proposed code inv olv ing committee meetings and one or more public hearings before mak ing recommendation to the Board of Rev iew for each proposed code. The Board of Rev iew then holds their own session of rev iew and public hearing before mak ing final recommendation of a new Pik es Peak Regional Building Code to the participating jurisdictions. Each Jurisdiction has the final authority regarding proposed code content prior to adoption. The Code becomes enforceable when each Jurisdiction legally adopts the Code by resolution or ordinance.
