Determine Need for Approval
ECOBA provides plan approval and inspection services for commercial and industrial buildings in compliance with the Ohio Building Code. This Code does not cover one, two, or three family dwellings. Please contact your local city, village or township officials to determine if a residential 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.
