What codes must I follow?
There are many federal, state, and local codes, rules and standards that may apply to your project. These codes establish minimum rules for construction, electrical, plumbing, heating / ventilation / air conditioning (HVAC) installations as well as things like toilet parity and handicap accessibility. Due to the variables with each individual project, trying to list the specific requirements for each type of project is next to impossible. For assistance with code requirements for your project, please email the Building Department or call 608-848-9940.
