Project Submittal

FPP Commercial ConstructionInformation on project submittals and applications for Electrical & Plumbing trade permits may be made directly to the inspector by phone or fax. For information on how to contact your inspector, please refer to "Contact Information".

To find out which Inspection Team Member is assigned to the building you will be working in, please refer to the "Customer and Building List". Once you know which team is assigned to you building, you are welcome to contact them and they will assist you in determining the required information needed to authorize your construction project.


What information should be on your plans at the time of submittal?

  • Site Plan: When there is outside work; for example (changes to the roof or on the roof, creating a new opening on an outside wall)
  • Floor plans: A floor plan, also known as a plan view, is what you would see if you were to look straight down at a floor with the roof or floors above removed. You will need to provide one floor plan for each level of the building on which work is being done.
  • Elevation views
  • Cross section drawings
  • Architectural and/or Structural "Approval" stamps: We do not deem the plans complete without the approval stamp

Your plans must clearly show all the work you intend to do on the building as well as the existing conditions. In some cases, we will need the plans to show where the building sits on your property in relationship to property lines and other buildings on the site.
