CONSTRUCTION OFFICE FUNCTIONS

 

The Construction Office enforces the regulations of the Uniform Construction Code (UCC) of the State of New Jersey. All construction is regulated by the UCC and its referenced codes and standards. Construction Permits are reviewed and issued by the Construction Department. The UCC has six Subcodes: Building, Plumbing, Mechanical, Electrical, Fire and Elevator. Each of the Subcodes has an official designated to enforce the regulations of the applicable Subcode, as well as Inspectors to monitor compliance under the supervision of the Construction Official.

 

The Subcode Officials review and approve plans submitted, perform inspections as necessary and issue stop work orders where appropriate. The Construction Official is the Administrator of the Construction Department who releases all permits after review by the appropriate Subcode Official, ensures that all inspections are scheduled and performed, that reports are completed and properly filed, approves all Certificates of Occupancy and issues violations notices when necessary in order to maintain UCC compliance.
