The construction office is responsible for administering the New Jersey Uniform Construction Code (UCC) when permits are required. The typical application process requires the submission of a completed construction permit jacket, UCC Form F-100, the applicable sub code form (building, electrical, plumbing, fire, and/or elevator) and three sets of plans prepared by either the homeowner or a New Jersey licensed architect or engineer. If submitting large document plans (blueprints), Voorhees Township requests that the designer submit a digital copy in CD – pdf format – in order to reduce cost for record storage. The CD may be used in lieu of the required 3rd set of paper plans. (NOTE: See information under Construction Permits FAQs Minor Work for permits not requiring plans.)

Once the completed application has been accepted, the submitted plans will be reviewed for compliance to all applicable codes. If the plans are deficient, a plan review will be sent, preferably by email to expedite the process, and a response in writing will be required. Once all issues are satisfied, the permit will be issued. The typical time frame from start to finish on an application meeting all requirements is less than 10 days.

NOTE TO HOMEOWNERS:
If preparing your own plans and completing any of the sub code sections of the permit, your signature will be required on those documents.

The construction office also administers regulations for hotels, multiple dwellings, ADA compliance on new construction, and floodplain maps. Contact Colin Mahon for information on the above.
