All commercial projects require a digital plan submittal alongside the Commercial Building Permit application. Once the permit application is accepted with the plans, a plan review will be performed with comments returned within 10 working days. The building permit cannot be issued for new buildings unless the Grading permit has been issued, the Site Plan is approved (with Planning conditions met), Bonds established, Plats recorded, development fees paid etc.
Most plans are required to be prepared by an licensed Architect or Engineer. Examples where a licensed designer is required below:
New Shell buildings or the first time a tenant space is built out
Assembly occupancies (includes restaurants, bars, places of worship, etc.)
Projects with electrical work
Educational or Multi-family residential
Changes to structure or means of egress
