Commercial Construction – New and Remodel

Commercial Building Permit

Permits for new commercial construction require building, electrical, mechanical and plumbing permits. The building permit must be obtained before a trade permit can be issued. Other requirements may need to be met before a building permit can be issued depending upon the property location, zoning, or based on design guidelines for the area.

Permits also are required for construction that changes, moves or repairs walls, floors, ceilings, windows, doors, electrical, mechanical or plumbing.

Permits are not required for “cosmetic” remodels (floor or wall covering, cabinets, counter tops, shelving, etc.) or plumbing fixture replacement.
