Public Works Programs

The MAG Public Works Program helps standardize infrastructure construction throughout the region by coordinating the building codes, and specifications and details, used by member agencies. These standards ensure that construction is cost effective and meets safety and quality standards.

  • Building Codes

    The Building Codes Program provides a regional forum for construction and development issues as they relate to building codes. The mission of the program is to encourage and promote uniformity in the interpretation and enforcement of all the building, electrical, plumbing, mechanical, residential, fire, energy, and fuel codes adopted by MAG member agencies.
  • Building Codes Committee

    This committee consists of Building Officials from MAG member agencies. The committee makes recommendations on the development, interpretation and enforcement of building codes in the MAG region. It also provides a regional forum for construction, development, and other issues as they relate to building codes.
  • Specifications and Details for Public Works Construction

    The principal goal of this program is to annually update the MAG Uniform Standard Specifications and Details for Public Works Construction document and ensure that copies of the publications are available for sale and online. These publications are used by many agencies, as well as private contractors within Maricopa County, and form the basis for most of the Standards and Specifications in use by many MAG member agencies. The publication includes the Specifications, a written description of definitions, techniques, and materials; and the Details, which are a series of technical drawings showing graphical representations of some of the specifications.
  • Specifications and Details Committee

    This committee consists of representatives from member agency engineering departments and the construction industry. The committee makes recommendations on proposed amendments to the MAG Specifications and Details for Public Works Construction.
