The Building Division of the Regulatory Services Department is responsible
for the permitting and oversight of all aspects of building construction,
zoning enforcement, sign codes, site plan review and permitting and inspection activities related to electrical, gas and plumbing codes. Many of
the functions of the Division are mandated by the Commonwealth of
Massachusetts, including enforcement and implementation of the state
building code, the state zoning act, the state gas and plumbing codes, and
the state architectural access code. Additional local codes and standards
must also be enforced.
