Local government building valuation data

Building valuation data is taken from International Code Council tables and modified for Minnesota.

The building valuation data format provides average square-foot construction cost value using the International Building Code occupancy classifications and types of construction. Data provided is for comparison with valuations submitted by the applicant for permits. Costs are intended to include architectural, structural, electrical, plumbing and mechanical work.

DLI strongly recommends that all local municipalities actively evaluate and assess the impact of using this building valuation table.

See Minnesota Rules, Chapter 1300.0160 regarding permit fee regulations, including permit fee schedules adopted by the municipality, permit fees commensurate with service, building permit valuations, permit fees based on valuation and plan review fees for similar plans.
