Commercial Express Permits

Building and Permit Services currently offers express permit application review program for tenant infill / tenant improvement projects that meet prespecified qualifications. With your commitment of time and active participation in the review process, our goal is to be able to issue the permit on the same day! Plans examiners from various disciplines will meet individually with you to review the individual code requirements of their respective fields. This provides the opportunity for discussion, clarification and collaboration in order to make any necessary on-the-spot revisions to the plan set to bring designs into full code compliance.

Commercial Express Permit Hours

Projects are considered for Commercial Express Permit (CEP) review on Monday and Wednesday between 9 a.m. and 12 noon. Depending on the project's scope of work involved, the process may take an hour or it may take several hours from start to finish. If the plans are stamped by a design professional, they must be present throughout the review process. Otherwise, the person authorized by the owner to make modifications to the plans / design must be present.


To see if your project will qualify, see the Commercial Express Permit Information & Qualification Guidelines.   

If you have any questions about this process, our commercial plan review staff looks forward to guiding you through the process. We can be reached at 541-682-5613 or via email.
