- About Us
As a general guide, Springfield Township reviews and approves all new construction and renovation activities in accordance with the Pennsylvania Uniform Construction Code Act. The framework for the statewide building code is the International Construction Code (ICC) series listed below. Please note that the ICC series serves as the minimum code requirements. The Township has adopted several local amendments to the ICC that will not be found in the ICC series. View the Township Code on-line at General Code Website.
If you are planning on performing any new construction activities, you are encouraged to make an appointment with the Building Inspector prior to engaging an architect or contractor so that you may have a complete understanding of township requirements.
