What Does It Mean If My Building Is “Certified”?

< Back

When a local regulating authority “certifies” a set of building plans, that means they have given their approval. That also means that the plans comply with the specific design requirements for that location. A building in a seismically active area, for example, may need to meet strict codes related to earthquakes. Certain regulations may also govern structures built in areas prone to high winds or heavy snowfall.

Regulations vary from region to region, and the Matador team will be happy to help you navigate the permitting process. Ultimately, though, it will be up to you to make sure that you get approval from your local authorities.
