Quad Cities Building Codes

Important: Check back periodically for updates to code requirements. Contractors: If the codes do not seem to be updated for a government entity or if corrections are needed, suggest to the listed Building Official that changes be sent to Jo Mason, AGCQC. The Quad City Building Codes outlines key aspects of building codes and permit procedures established in the Greater Quad Cities.  This list is intended to make designers and builders aware of the differences among the several authorities and to provide a single source for working through the design, submittal and construction requirements in each municipality.  You may use the All Codes or the convenient, printable individual community sections (Bettendorf, etc.) in the menu below.

Please note aspects of the following categories:

Code Amendments:  Each municipality adopts amendments to the building code.  Please contact the building department for content of these amendments.
Historic Preservation Exceptions: Some municipalities offer exceptions to some building code requirements for historic projects.  Please contact the building department for content of these exceptions.
Architect/Engineer Stamp Requirements:  Iowa and Illinois have enacted legislation, which requires the services of Architects and/or Engineers on building projects.  Each state has listed exceptions to this requirement.  Also, some municipalities require the architect's/engineer's stamp only in specific instances.  Please contact the building department for a list of these exceptions and specific areas.
Plan Review Fees:  Some municipalities require a plan review fee in addition to the building permit fee.  Please contact the building department for amounts if "yes" is box indicated in this box in the matrix.
Building Permit Fees:  Please contact the appropriate building department for fee schedules.
Zoning/Overlay Districts, Storm Water Management, and Flood Zone Management:  These areas are commonly administered through the Planning Department of a municipality.  Additional plan submittals may be required. Please call the building department for contacts regarding these requirements.
As information contained in this site changes on an irregular basis, check the Website for updates often.
