Different permits applications require different information. However, there are some fairly common information requests that apply to most permit applications:
Property owner’s name, address, telephone number, e-mail address and fax number
Contractor’s name, address, phone number, e-mail address and license number
Description of work
Drawn plans typically are not necessary for electrical, mechanical or plumbing permit applications. However, structural permits normally do require plans that clearly show all work on the building and where the building sits on the property. Typical plans include a site plan, floor plans and cross sections showing construction details. If you have any questions as to what information is required, a building department staff member will be able to assist you.
