Need to build a new facility or add onto an existing building? If you do, you need to deal with construction permits for the different parts of your project. Let’s look at the different types of construction permits that your project may require.
Before you even schedule construction for your project, you need the proper permits for the job. Denver Development Services’ building permits include the following:
- Commercial Construction Permit: These permits clear you to complete construction on commercial or multifamily properties.
- Electrical Permit: This permit allows you to complete electrical work in your new building or addition.
- Plumbing Permit: This helps you complete plumbing and gas installations.
- Address Assignment Permit: This helps you request a new address for your building.
- Signs Zoning Permit: This allows you to put a sign outside your building.
- Fire Permit: This allows you to install fire alarms and sprinkler systems.
These are just a few of the permits you might need during your construction project. You may need different permits throughout your commercial building construction phases. Check with your construction contractor to ensure you have the right ones for your project.
Applying for permits involves following sets of guidelines and filling out the appropriate forms. Check out the Commercial Building Permit Guide to learn how to apply for them. It takes you through every step of the construction planning and permit application processes and shows you whether you need to get approval from specific Denver zoning departments, like Landmarks and Historic Districts or the Office of the City Forester. It walks you through the building plan review process and the project process after you receive your permits. If you follow the steps in this guide, you’ll get your permits approved quickly and efficiently.
You need a commercial building permit for most commercial construction projects in Denver. Why?
