The Building Division of the Community Development Department is responsible for the enforcement of all codes concerning construction alterations, additions, repair, removal, demolition, occupancy and maintenance of all buildings and structures within the Village. The Building Division uses a nationally recognized set of Building Codes and Standards, which along with local amendments ensures that the public's safety and the community's high standard of living is not compromised.

Nationally, the first Building Codes were established in the early 1900's and have steadily grown since that time into three (3) Model Code Groups used throughout the country. The need for continuity and cooperation among the three models have encouraged the merging of the groups and the development of the International Code Council (ICC). This Council has produced the most comprehensive code series to date, and in July of 2001, the Village of Lincolnshire became one of the first groups of communities in the nation to adopt these codes. The Village subsequently progressed to the 2006 ICC Code series, and most recently adopted the 2009 Codes.
