What do I need to obtain a mechanical permit?

A completed Building Permit Application (yellow form) is required. Select the permit type and the mechanical category on the form. If this is a sub-permit, include the master permit number on the application.

A Mechanical Fee Sheet must be submitted as part of a permit application. Fee sheets break down the cost of permit by category.

If a category indicates "needs processing," then plans must be submitted for plan review.

E-permitting for Contractors

The E-Permitting web application allows qualified contractors to submit applications, pay fees and print permit cards for subsidiary and stand-alone permits for electrical, mechanical, plumbing, roofing and gas trades. Customers no longer need to come in person to the Permitting and Inspection Center to apply and receive these types of permits. Review the E-permitting guidelines.
