Mission Statement

 

To improve the quality of life for the people of Holyoke by advancing public health and safety through effective building code enforcement.

The Building Department is charged with enforcing the State Building Code, Plumbing and Gas Code, Electrical Code, the Architectural Access Code, Zoning Ordinance, and conditions attached to Special Permits.  We respond to citizen complaints about the safety, accessibility and security of construction to their homes and businesses.  It issues permits for building, wiring, plumbing, gas, and signs.  The Building Department performs plan reviews, on-site inspections of all new construction, alterations, and repairs.  The Department also oversees change of use and occupancy, demolitions and zoning violations.

BUILDING PERMITS MUST BE OBTAINED FOR THE FOLLOWING ACTIVITIES:

  • New construction or additions to a structure
  • Repairs and alterations to a structure
  • Decks & porches
  • Fences
  • Pools
  • Roofing
  • Siding
  • Windows
  • Signs
  • Demolition
  • Solid fuel burning appliances
  • Replacement of an existing heating system

Buildings must remain accessible to the Building Department when an inspection is called for.  It is the responsibility of the contractor not the Building Department to have the building open.
