When is a building permit required?

A building permit must be obtained prior to commencing any new construction or alterations to an existing structure. This includes, but not limited to, some of the following projects:

  • New Building
  • Additions
  • Renovations
  • Demolition
  • Prefabricated Structures
  • Temporary Buildings
  • Electrical Systems
  • HVAC Systems
  • Plumbing
  • Signs
  • Landscaping

The plan review process and subsequent inspections protect you, your family, friends, and future owners against the potential hazards of unsafe construction. It also protects your investment, as many insurers do not pay claims on construction performed without the benefit of a building permit, the required inspections, and certificate of occupancy.
