Let me help you today.

All plans that I prepare are to be submitted under the name of your contractor. HPPD anticipates your work to be performed by a licensed and insured contractor who is properly registered with the DCCA Hawaii Regulated Industries Compliant Office (RICO). HPPD does have a provision for 'owner builder'. However, all 'owner builders' have to affirm (a legally binding term) that they are responsible to performing all construction work according to all applicable state codes for building, electrical, plumbing, zoning, and several others.
