Contractor's Role

Once a permit has been obtained, authorization to commence construction within the scope of the permit is granted. It is the responsibility of the contractor to conform to the building and technical codes for all installations or repairs of a building or service system and to schedule all the required inspections.

A homeowner acting as general contractor assumes the same responsibility for code compliance as a licensed general contractor.
