Whose responsibility is it to see that the building code is followed?

The contractor you hire to complete your project is responsible for compliance with the state building code and they should be licensed by the state (when required) to perform the work. If there is ever a question as to whether or not some aspect of a construction project complies with the code, the contractor is the responsible party. If you are performing the work yourself, then you are the responsible party.
