Commercial building projects

Do you have a commercial building project?  A commercial building is defined as a public building and/or a place of employment.

A commercial building project has three factors that you need to consider:

  1. Determine if you need a local building permit from your local municipality
    1. Go to my web page “Areas we serve” and then click on your municipality to find out if they require a local building permit, some do and some don’t.
  2. Determine if you need a state plan review, some projects are exempt from plan review
    1. Click here to go to the DSPS website to find out more information on plan review
  3. Request inspections during your building construction stages
    1. Click here to find a state inspector near you
