Plan check fees are based on the date of application submittal and the applicant's
estimated value of work. These fees are due when the application is first submitted
to the Permit and Information Center (PIC). Changes in valuation due to underestimation
of project value, or through changes to the project plans, may result in additional
structural plan check fees due at the time the approved permit is issued.
The structural plan check fee calculation is only for determining the amount due at time
of application. It cannot be used to determine total permit fees.
For residential projects, the
Permit Fee Estimating Worksheet
can be helpful. For commercial and multi-family projects,
use the Commercial Fee Estimating Guide.
Permit fees for commercial mechanical, fire systems (such as alarms and sprinklers) and medical gas
systems are based on the date of application submittal and the value of work.
Enter the valuation of your work to see an estimate of the plan check, permit, administrative and surcharge
fees that would be applicable for this type of work.
Please note: If you plan to submit your plans sometime in the future, your fees may vary.
For questions regarding any planned fee increases, please contact the Permit Information Center
