Construction

Construction plans and inspections are required for a variety of building alterations including but not limited to electrical and/or plumbing modifications or changing of wall partitions.

Green Brook Township provides our construction and development customers with in house permit management, plan review and inspection services to enhance the building environment. Subcode Officials (Building, Electric, Plumbing, Elevator (DCA) and Fire) are responsible for administration and enforcement of the New Jersey Uniform Construction Code, ICC and other codes. These statutes and codes are used by every community in New Jersey, along with all other NJ State adopted codes as a method to issue permits and perform inspections on construction for the welfare and safety of the public.

Permits are required for most work to ensure proper construction techniques. It is best to check with the Construction Department to see if permits are required for the work proposed. We are here to assist the public and will answer any questions pertaining to permits and construction. Construction permits ARE required for Hot Water Heaters.

In order to issue permits for any construction work, the Construction Department must also interact with other departments, such as Zoning, Engineering, Board of Health, Soil Conservation and others. These other departments provide prior approvals for proposed work and the releases from them must be obtained before a construction permit can be issued. When applying for a permit, the Construction Office will guide applicants as to which permit applications are required and which prior approvals must be obtained.

Every permit issued requires 1 or more inspections and culminates in a CA or CO. A permit is not considered closed until the CA or CO is issued.

Please note that open permits may hinder the sale of property.
