Demolition Permits & Moving a Building

The City of Dubuque Building Services Department issues Permits for De-Construction or Demolition projects and also issues Permits for Moving Buildings.

For further information or answers to any possible questions please contact the Building Services Department by email or phone. 

Green Tip:
The City of Dubuque encourages De-Construction practices and work methods  through recycling efforts of all existing building materials that can be re-used or recycled during your demolition project. De-Construction work practices will lower the overall percentage of debris or waste hauled to the Landfill which will proportionally lower your Landfill fees as well.
