Construction company Taylor Construction, which is building a construction site in South Carolina, has been fined $10,000 and will have to pay $20,000 to resolve the violations, according to the South Carolina Construction Commission.
The company is required to install a minimum of six permits for all construction projects, which include the sidewalk on which the project is planned, according the commission.
Taylor Construction was not immediately available for comment.
A few weeks ago, the South Carolinian Department of Transportation received a complaint about a construction project near the intersection of South Main Street and N.S. Hatteras Highway, a major road that cuts through the town of Palmetto, about 40 kilometres (25 miles) north of Charleston.
South Carolina Department of Revenue officials said they inspected the site and determined the construction company had not complied with building code requirements.
According to the commission, the company was fined the maximum $10 and will be required to pay the remaining $20.
In addition to the $10 fine, the commission also ordered Taylor Construction to put up a $15 sign on the road, install two cameras and put up flashing orange lights, among other measures.
There were no other violations.
As well, the construction site has been identified as one of the most polluted places in the state, with nearly 1,000 hazardous waste sites, according in a study released last year by the University of South Carolina.
