Determine Need for Approval
ECOBA provides plan approval and inspection services for all buildings and structures within the scope of the Ohio Building Code. Two, or three family dwellings do not fall within our jurisdiction but are required to be constructed in compliance with the current residential code of Ohio. Please contact your local city, village or township officials to determine if a residential zoning permit is necessary.
Generally speaking, approval is required to construct, enlarge, alter, repair, move, or change the occupancy of a building or structure, or portion thereof, or to erect, install, enlarge, alter, repair, remove, convert or replace any electrical, gas, mechanical, plumbing system, or other building service equipment, or piping system. Approvals are not generally required in the case of ordinary repairs and maintenance.
