Length of Time to Obtain a Commercial Building Permit

The time to obtain a building permit depends on the type and complexity of the permit. Permits for simple jobs may use the "Fast Track" service and receive their permits on the same day. To see if your permit qualifies for a "Fast Track" review you must visit the DPS website by clicking on link.

Permits for new commercial buildings have a 30-day review cycle that begins after the application has passed the screening process and been assigned for review. The total processing time is dependent on the complexity and completeness of the design, outside agency approvals, and the applicant's response time to any deficiencies noted during the plan review process. Plans submitted on paper may require a slightly longer review period than the indicate 30-day plan review cycle.
