Separate mechanical, electrical, and plumbing permits are often on-demand permits unless the work is extensive. If the work is part of a larger building project, these permits are usually bundled with the building permit to form a combination permit.
Applications requiring building plans will be reviewed within 5 business days for 1- and 2-family dwellings and 10 business days for all other building types once your permit application has been deemed complete and initialized in our system (you will receive a Permit submission Confirmation Letter). Projects where it has been determined that no building plans are required may be issued on demand.
Mechanical, electrical, and plumbing permits remain valid as long as work is proceeding and an inspection has been performed within the last 6 months. If work has halted or been abandoned and no inspection has been conducted within the last 6 months, the permit may be suspended. Extensions may be granted by the Building Commissioner through written request by the permit holder. Extensions are not guaranteed.
