Commercial Remodel Permit

Commercial remodel building permits, like their residential equivalent, are for improvements that do not add any new square footage to.

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

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