Permits and Regulations

Various permits are required for the construction, addition, renovation and repair of commercial buildings. Permits, once issued, allow for the necessary follow-up inspection to ensure that work is undertaken according to the proper Code or Standard.   

Before making an application for a permit, there are a number of things you should know and be prepared for. The requirements vary widely depending on the type of permit you want. Detailed information is provided on the various permit types separately for ease of use.
