If new residential construction or addition over 500 square feet, provide a set of blueprint drawings for review. The plan review process takes 24 hours. The cost of the plan review is $25.00.
If commercial construction, provide blueprint drawings sealed by a licensed architect. Three sets (Two paper and one electronic copy) are required for all new construction and also for renovations or up-fits. Turn around time for plan review is given on a per project basis. The cost of the plan review is half the cost of the building permit for that project.
All permits that do not require plans can usually be obtained on the same day.
All permits (with the exception of garage sales) require inspections by the Building and Codes Department. Inspectors usually require a 24-hour notice for all inspections. To request an inspection, please call (864) 231-2219.
