Obtaining Permits

Process Length
For new construction, including residential and commercial:
  • The first initial plan review is as long as 2 to 3 weeks
  • Re-review is generally 1 to 2 weeks
  • This, of course, assumes that the entire application is complete
For existing construction, such as tenant finish:
  • The review depends on the amount of work being done
  • An average time for the first review is 1 to 2 weeks
  • A basement finish may only be 1 to 2 working days in review time
Length of Validity
Issued permits are valid indefinitely (within reason) provided work is started within 180 days of issuance, and an inspection has been performed for each 180 day period thereafter.
