The Town of Kirkwood maintains high expectations when dealing with building codes and other ordinance enforcement. The main duty of the Town Building and Code Enforcement Office is to make sure that all residents and future residents of the Town are adhering to the rules set forth by both state and town law. This includes fire inspection, building permits, and property maintenance laws. If you have any questions regarding town or state code please direct your questions to the Building and Code Enforcement Office at 775-4313.
The following is a checklist of the necessary materials you MUST present to the building department in order to be eligible for a building permit:

If electrical work is installed, the electrical inspections are performed by any one of the two independent agents (Commonwealth Electrical Inspection Services, Inc, or Atlantic Inland Inc.). Please contact one of them and schedule inspections for the electrical work with them. They charge separate fees.
