Why do I need a building permit?
A building permit gives you the legal permission to start construction of a building project in accordance with approved drawings and specifications. By obtaining a permit, you authorize licensed building inspectors to inspect the construction performed at intervals during construction. By doing this, the Building Department ensures that minimum code requirements are met, thereby causing the construction to be less likely to cause injury to you, your family, your friends or future owners.
