Building Addition

We have tried our best to provide all the information necessary on this page to help you understand the process for permitting your project from beginning to the end. 

A Building Addition permit type is used when any additional roof area is being added regardless if the slab is existing.   

Once you've made application, the permit is usually ready between 3-5 days.   If any additional information is required, you will receive an email with the details. 

Once you have received your permit, the job card will outline what inspections are necessary for your project.  You may schedule the inspection by calling 386-986-4747 or through this website.  All approved documents are required to be available for the inspector when he arrives.   The inspector will sign your job card if the inspections passes.   

If the project is not accessible, you will need to be on the site to give the inspector access to the job. 

The permit will remain active for six months from the date of issuance, if the permit expires without the required inspections, a new permit will be required.

If a foundation survey for the concrete involved in your project is not on file in our office, a foundation survey will need to be submitted prior to any vertical construction.
