Worcester County Construction & Plan Inspections

Worcester County Building Inspectors inspect new construction, remodels, and renovations, and in some cases, they ensure the safety of vacant real estate that is the site for planned construction. As part of the process, Building Inspectors issue Worcester County construction, relocation, demolition, and occupancy permits. Depending on the nature of a project, inspections may be required at any phase of construction work. Building Inspectors review and approve Worcester County building plans and blueprints for new construction or major renovations in order to ensure that the plans incorporate compliance with Worcester County building codes. While large projects are underway, Building Inspectors monitor and inspect to verify that approved plans are followed and the building meets code requirements. These building site inspections include mechanical, as well as plumbing and electrical inspections. If the project is non-compliant at any time, the Building Inspector can issue a building code violation notice and a Worcester County stop work order. At the conclusion of the project, a final comprehensive inspection is conducted.
