The MCBIA Builder’s Roundtable is an open forum for all MCBIA members (builders, associates and affiliates alike) who can attend and share concerns, ideas or suggestions on any number of construction related topics. This is your chance to engage your association to address issues that enable us to better serve our clients and customers, as well as for the protection of the public. In order to provide adequate time for discussion of a new issue, we recommend you contact David Harden our Executive Officer and discuss with him your concern or idea for placement on the agenda at the next Builder’s Roundtable meeting

As your voice for the construction industry, we advocate an insightful dialogue with our City, County and State building officials to effectively bring meaningful change so as to assure that the building and development codes that govern our industry avoid or eliminate egregious policies that impedes the advancement of our industry and the services we provide to the public.

We value your opinion and look forward to your contribution. Please plan to attend our next Builders Roundtable meeting. To attend a Builders Roundtable meeting, check the MCBIA events calendar.

Mr. Dave Galassi and staff provided an insightful look at how to streamline your permit applications, schedule inspections and minimize re-inspection fees on all permitted projects submitted to the MCBS. He also mentioned to look for an adjustment and more favorable permit fees on remodel and addition permits as the definition of each is being changed. The County building services department has experienced a recent drop in inspectors due to attrition. Mr. Galassi and his staff are working diligently to hire 4 new inspectors to better facilitate timely inspections. There was a group discussion on the code changes taking effect July 1st, including the new requirement for a “blower door” test that will be required prior to the issuance of a Certificate of Occupancy.
