The purpose of the Fort Mojave Indian Tribe Building Department is to promote the general health, safety, and welfare of the Tribal Members and all who reside or do business on the Reservation. We also work with developers and contractors to achieve safe buildings and work with other departments to coordinate our efforts. We strive to achieve these goals and contribute to the mission of the Tribe.
The Fort Mojave Building Department was established in 1991 with the adoption of the 1991 Uniform Building Code as the Fort Mojave Tribal Building Code. Since then the Avi Hotel and Casino, The Calpine Power Plant, the Medical Center and many other structures have been built on the Reservation. Working with the Mohave Valley Fire Department we are the first to adopt the Newer Codes in this Tri-State Region ensuring our insurance rates stay at the lowest possible level. We are currently working on adopting the newest International Building Code edition so that we can stay in the forefront on technology and innovation in our construction practices.
