We serve the metro townships of Magna, Kearns, White City, Emigration Canyon and Copperton, the Town of Brighton and unincorporated Salt Lake County by assisting residents and commercial businesses in obtaining building permits and inspections.
The MSD Building Department works to provide a process that is timely and efficient. We interpret and enforce the building code for new and existing construction sites and new or updated business locations. We recognize the building process is part of a strong and safe community. Our professional staff has years of experience and is committed to reviewing building, fire, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing drawings to ensure buildings are constructed in accordance with existing building codes.
To schedule an inspection, please call the Building Inspection Hotline 385-468-6690 before 3:00 pm to schedule your inspection for the following business day.

If you need to coordinate or find out when they will be coming, it is your responsibility to call our office at 385-468-6688 between 7:30 am and 8:00 am the morning of the inspection to make arrangements with the inspector. Failure to do so may result in a failed inspection and a re-inspection fee. Thank you for your cooperation in
