Townships

Townships and municipalities often unintentionally make the lives of architects and contractors more difficult. However, it is important to remember that they are acting on the best interest of their property owners. Each Township/Municipality has the ability to interpret the code and enforce it as they see fit. Therefore each one often has a different set of requirements. This can make an architect's job difficult as some townships require far more detailed information than others. In general however, each one operates under very similar principals with similar goals. Therefore, once an architect or contractor has done work in one area, it is unlikely the neighboring community would be drastically different. It is far more important to find professionals who do good work than to find someone who has worked in your specific town. Assuming the professional has performed work around the area where the project is, there is no reason not to hire them.
