Building Safety Week

Builders today need not worry about being put to death, but they still work hard to make sure their structures are safe.
April 5-9 is Building Safety Week and the Glenwood Springs Building Department is holding daily drawings for building codebooks and other helpful books to aid contractors, designers, and property owners in their own construction projects.
