Getting a permit for most changes of use will often require extensive plans for the building, showing the existing conditions as well as any work you propose. The plans submitted for permit will need to include a building code analysis that shows any deficiencies from current code, and how those will be addressed. You will almost always need a really good site plan, even if you don't plan to do any work on the outside of the building or on the site.
