Commercial Building Permits

Building permits give legal permission to construct, demolish or renovate on a property.  Failure to obtain a building permit can result in construction delays, legal action and the removal of work completed. A commercial building is a building that is used for commercial use. Types can include office buildings, warehouses, or retail, including convenience stores & shopping malls.
