An industrialized building must meet the following requirements in order to receive the Virginia registration seal(s):
There are two separate and distinct registration seals, one for structures complying with the Virginia Construction Code (VCC) and the other for structures complying with the Virginia Residential Code (VRC). All structures require one seal for each manufactured section or module. The cost of each seal is $75.
The State Building Codes Office (SBCO) is the building official for industrialized buildings. The SBCO approves third-party Compliance Assurance Agencies (CAA) to review designs, inspect construction and certify the buildings through the application of a Virginia Registration Seal. The performance of the CAA is monitored by DHCD. Local code officials handle the permits, site inspections and issuance of the certificate of occupancy for the installation and related site work for the IBs under the authority granted to them by the Virginia Construction Code. The local code officials must accept the registered IB without requiring disassembly of the components that were inspected and concealed at the factory.
