Whether you need residential or commercial building permits, we have you covered. With over 20 years of experience working within the North Bay, we are experienced and knowledgeable in what building permits are required for your project.

Commercial and residential building permitting is the process of getting consent in the form of acquiring the necessary documents that the city planning division, county, state and other concerned organizations require. The procurement of these licenses is required by law, therefore, before any new construction is done, approval must be obtained.

Building permits don't only protect the safety of future occupants from dangerous conditions, but they also protect the owner by ensuring that fair business transactions are done. Permitting acts as a check for civil engineering companies in the sense that it double checks design plans. It also helps cities with maintaining public safety and city planning organization. Commercial and residential building permit qualification requirements are based on civil engineering rules and guidelines in order to ensure your project is done professionally and correctly.

  • City, County, and State Permits
