The Building Department (contact: Sam Barghi) is responsible for implementing and enforcing current applicable codes and ordinances within the Village of Bannockburn. Building permits are required for new construction, as well as for specific scopes of work to alter or repair existing structures or property. The department also facilitates the landscape and tree removal process. The department oversees the construction process at various stages through building inspections to confirm the scope of work is being done per current codes and ordinances. The Village outsources its plan review and inspection services for building, engineering, and forestry. The Village has an intergovernmental agreement for with the City of Lake Forest to provide plan reviews and perform the inspections.

There are several distinct functional areas: Architecture Review, Zoning Compliance, Building Permit Process, Code Enforcement and Community Development.
