What we do

The Commercial Construction program is responsible for ensuring public safety through the effective application of commercial building, structural, electrical, mechanical, fire-safety, accessibility and sustainability conservation codes and standards. As the “First Preventers”, this is accomplished through plan review and construction site inspections to facilitate compliance with approved plans and regulations. This program processes applications for and issues Building, Mechanical, Fire Protection and Electrical Permits. The program also handles construction complaints during natural and other disasters and assists in disaster recovery.
