Should any of the above-adopted codes have a minimum requirement that is in conflict, the more restrictive requirement will prevail and will be required.

NOTE: All residential construction requires construction plans to be signed and stamped by an Alabama licensed architect OR engineer.

All non-residential construction requires construction plans to be signed and stamped by both an Alabama licensed architect AND engineer.
