Overview of the Minnesota State Building Code
Every six years, our agency adopts new building codes designed to promote cost-effective ways of ensuring building safety and efficiency.
The Minnesota State Building Code is the minimum construction standard throughout all of Minnesota including all cities, townships and counties. Although it isn't enforceable by municipalities unless it is adopted by local ordinance, the State Building Code creates a level playing field for the construction industry by establishing the construction standard for all buildings in the state.
