The Building Department is responsible for the enforcement of the NJ State Uniform Construction Code. Residents are most aware of this department when they need to obtain construction permits for renovations of existing areas of their homes, additions, decks, garages, sheds, and other work requiring building, electrical, plumbing and fire permits.
The Building Department is operated by a full time Construction Official, Building Sub-Code Official/Inspector, Office Manager/Head Control Person and an Assistant Office Manager/Control Person. Part-time staff members are the electrical, plumbing and fire Sub-Code Official/Inspectors. The Construction Official is responsible for the operation of his staff and for the administration of the NJ Uniform Construction Code. The Sub-Code Officials/Inspectors answer technical questions, review plans and permit applications and make the required field inspections. They are all state licensed and are required to take continuing education courses. Inspectors are also needed when emergencies affect buildings and services.
