Code Announcement – Minor Work: A Reminder As We Close Out Building Safety Month

As of March 5, 2018, the requirements for minor work and ordinary maintenance in the state of New Jersey have changed.  A variety of projects for commercial and residential structures that previously required building permits have now been categorized as Ordinary Maintenance or Minor Work.
Follow this link to review the document for the specific details and to understand how you and your clients may be impacted. Changes have been highlighted for ease of identification.
AIA NJ recommends that you notify your clients that the elimination of the permit requirement removes one safeguard that existed previously. Do suggest that as they navigate that minor work or maintenance project they take care to protect themselves from contractor fraud or construction endangerment.
If your clients have any questions or concerns about this change they might benefit by retaining your services. If you have any questions about this change, contact the AIA NJ Codes Committee Chairman, Robert Longo, AIA, at
