Apply for a Building Permit
For state construction projects on which the Office of the State Building Inspector (OSBI) is the authority having jurisdiction (AHJ), please use the Building Permit Application form. Please ensure all relevant information is submitted along with the application. OSBI will engage the Office of the State Fire Marshal (OSFM) in the review.
For state construction not involving OSBI, please contact the state agency commissioning the work for their approval and inspection requirements.
For non state construction, please contact the building department of the municipality where the project is located.
All inspection requests require 48 hours notice.
Request Modifications and Exemptions
OSBI and OSFM review requests for modifications to the State Building Code and State Fire Safety Code, accessibility requirements, and the codes and regulations that apply to elevators and boilers etc.
Applications for those requests shall be made using the standard forms.
