The Building and Safety division of the Planning and Building Safety Department ensures the health and welfare of the residents of El Segundo by regulating the construction and occupancy of buildings. Today's codes are possible because of the efforts and the collaboration of building officials and key segments of the construction industry. Compliance with building standards are met through plan review, permit issuance and on-site inspection.

What we do:  

Plan Check

Plan Check ensures a project meets code requirements and is safe before construction starts. It done by processing permits and reviewing code compliance for structural, architectural, grading and fire safety, as shown on submitted plans. This service saves the builder from costly mistakes that can be made during construction and lends the additional expertise of a construction professional to the project.
