Who can be issued a building permit?

A building permit can be issued to individuals that possess a valid construction supervisors license (780 CMR R5) and are registered as a Home Improvement Contractor (M.G.L. Chapter 142A). An unrestricted construction supervisor license is valid for buildings and structures containing less than 35,000 cubic feet. A home improvement contractor registration is generally required for any individual or corporation involved in the improvement of any existing building or structure containing one to four residential dwelling units.
