Want to Build or Buy a Home? The Building Resiliency Center Is at Your Service!

Find Out more about the BRC, the resources it provides, and how it can help YOU!

The Building Resiliency Center is making the building process faster and easier.

Thinking about building or buying a home in Paradise? Thanks to the Building Resiliency Center (BRC), affectionately dubbed “The Brick,” you’ll have all the resources you need to get started.

Located at 6295 Skyway Road in Paradise (the old Bank of America building), the BRC is an office building housing a variety of departments fully dedicated to helping families make Paradise a home. “The BRC,” said Tony Lindsey, Community Development Director, “was created to be a one-stop-shop to reduce frustration and expedite reconstruction with all of the information, stipulations, and regulations under one roof.”

With a variety of departments, including Planning, Wastewater, Building, Code Enforcement, and Fire Prevention, the BRC brings together experienced staff to advise on all elements of the building process. And the BRC doesn’t just help people wanting to rebuild—they’re here to help existing homeowners and prospective buyers, too.

Staff at the BRC (“Rebuild Advocates”) are present to help with the process.

They can answer specific questions about planning, like environmental concerns related to the wastewater septic division, or guide you to financial resources for the most cost-effective build. Whatever your plans for building, they’re here to help.

Come with questions, permits, plans, or just good old curiosity. 

No matter where you’re at in the process, the BRC has the resources you need. 

These resources include:

  • Property files to research properties
  • Connections to contractors
  • Cooperators people can speak with in person

Staff at the BRC encourage you to visit with any questions or concerns—they’d love to help you!
