Permit plan review time depends on the scope, size, complexity and location of the project. Each project is evaluated by divisions within a building department. Some permits are issued same-day, often referred to as “over the counter” (simple electrical, roofing, plumbing, mechanical projects) while others for projects such as single family homes, new builds and remodels take weeks or months.

The building permit approval process can be even longer for commercial or industrial projects to receive final approval. Proper building permit application submittals combined with accurate supporting drawings and documents are a critical part of ensuring the most expeditious review time. Scout Services ensures all requirements are met upon submittal of building permit applications.
