Commercial Remodel Permit

Commercial remodel building permits are for improvements or renovations that do not add any new square footage to the existing building. This includes commercial accessory structures.

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

Energy Code Compliance documents are required for any conditioned or lighted space.
