Permit Fees

Commercial Building Permit Fees-



The permit fees are based on the building footprint square footage, the type of construction, and the occupancy type for the building.  Once we have this information, we use the Building Valuation Data table published by the International Code Council to calculate the permit fees.  Contact us with the above information and we will be able to calculate the permit fee for your project.

Residential Building Permit Fees-



The permit fees are based on the finished living space square footage, the type of construction, and the occupancy for the building.  Most of the time the type of construction is V-B and the occupancy is R-3.  Once we have this information, we use the Building Valuation Data table published by the International Code Council to calculate the permit fees.  Contact us with the above information and we will be able to calculate the permit fee for your project.

For Residential Basement Remodel projects we reduce the permit fee by a factor of .35 because the structure is already in place.  This does not apply for additions to the structure.  The minimum fee is $100.00.

For Residential and Commercial Remodels at or above finished grade we reduce the permit fee by a factor of .50 because the structure is already in place.  This does not apply for additions to the structure.  The minimum fee is $100.00.

Erosion Control Permit Fees-
