Building Code Enforcement

Gain a better understanding of the permitting process, essential code, authority, and liability with respect to permitting and inspection.

Some professionals in the construction community do not understand the importance of the permitting process and how to navigate it to make the process as efficient as possible. On some past projects, the improper codes were utilized or the proper authorities having jurisdiction were not consulted at the appropriate times. In other cases, the code officials did not understand their authority especially with respect to reviewing and approving alternative designs. This topic will help both the design, construction, and enforcement professionals have a better understanding of the permitting process, essential code provisions, and how everyone can work together to make the process as efficient as possible. The material will provide designers and contractors with the information needed to determine the applicable codes and proper permitting agencies. Recommended practices for the designers and contractors will also be discussed that have worked well with respect to streamlining the process. The topic will also assist code officials with better understanding how to define their duties, authority, and liability with respect to permitting and inspecting projects. It will show how the code gives them the authority to approve alternative designs without needing to necessarily go before an appeals board.
