In general, building permits are required whenever a building or structure regulated by the State Building Code is constructed, enlarged, altered, repaired, moved, or converted to another use. Mechanical, plumbing, and electrical permits are required whenever these systems are installed, altered, or replaced. There are exemptions under these codes.
