If the Building Inspector determines that the value of the proposed work for any given permit is not based on the fair market value then the inspector will calculate the fair market value of the work using the most recent edition of the RS Means Catalog. RS Means Catalog is used in the construction industry to determine the national and regional square footage and/or unit cost average for all phases of construction.
