The approval process for permits in New Jersey has always been challenging for companies. There is a lot of required information necessary in order to submit plans for review. In the Meadowlands the challenge is compounded because permits are reviewed by two entities rather than one.
In most municipalities, the required paperwork is submitted directly to the office of the Building Code Official. In the Meadowlands, all paperwork is actually received by the local township, then released to be delivered and reviewed by a Plan Reviewer of the NJMC. Once approved by the NJMC, the plans are then released back to the local township for further review and then finally a permit.
Once the project is complete, the township must come in and approve. Once approved by the township, the NJMC Plan Reviewer also performs an inspection for approval.
All of this is facilitated by the end user or an agent of the end user. With that said, this process can’t start until all the necessary documents have been gathered. All documents must be submitted in triplicate and must include a stamp from either an Architect or a Professional Engineer. No documents will be received by the local township or the NJMC without this.
Depending on the type of work being performed, the plans required will vary.
This process is very similar in townships across the country. We have contacts and expertise in many cities and towns and can provide excellent service wherever your facility is located.
