Construction And Building Sub-Code Division

Coronavirus precautions: In the interest of public health and protecting our residents and Township employees, those requesting construction permit inspections will be asked if anyone in their residence or workplace has been sick or outside of the United States in the past two weeks. If the answer is “yes,” the requested inspection will be delayed for two weeks.

Also, effective immediately, the Building Division will no longer accept in-person permit payments.  All payments must be sent through the postal mail to Piscataway Public Works Building, Attn: Building Division, 505 Sidney Road, Piscataway, NJ 08854

The Building Division also strongly recommends conducting any inquiries over the phone by calling it at (732) 562-2325 and not come in person to the Division offices.
