Getting Started

The FPP program does not relax code requirements or provide lower standards of plan review or inspection services than those required by State of Oregon Statutes, Administrative Rules or City of Portland Municipal Codes. 

A building permit is required for any commercial alteration project that includes structural changes, or when life safety requirements need to be reviewed for compliance to all city and state building codes.

From the beginning, FPP’s success has relied on a combination of creativity and flexibility in our approach to City business and open-honest “two-way” communication with our customers in order to get our client’s projects from “concept to construction.”

Early Assistance:
The Facility Permit Program urges applicants to reach out to us early regarding more complex projects. Call us at 503-823-5996, in many cases a consultation will be necessary.

FPP was built around developing ongoing relationships between our customer, the building owner and the assigned inspections team. Talk to us. Ask us questions. Communicate with your FPP Team early and often.
