On January 5, 2023, Governor Phil Murphy signed into law an Act amending New Jersey’s Uniform Construction Code Act (UCC) to facilitate expedited construction inspections, as explained in this week’s Client Alert by attorneys in the firm’s real estate practice. Healthcare entities undertaking construction projects for new or renovated facilities in New Jersey should be aware of these UCC amendments, which seek to remedy the existing lack of strict timeframes requiring public construction officials to respond promptly to construction inspection requests by providing the option to utilize an authorized private inspection company upon implementation of the Act.
