Our function is to insure that all new construction, additions, alterations/renovations conform to the State of New Jersey Uniform Construction Code and the New Jersey approved building codes.


Projects that require a construction permit are not complete until final inspections are made and a certificate of occupancy/approval is issued.  In accordance with nj state law, a building which has been erected, renovated or altered shall not be occupied or used in whole or part until a certificate of occupancy has been issued by the construction official.

Construction permits are valid for a period of “one” (1) year from the date of issuance and become invalid if the work is suspended for a period of “six” (6) months.
