Why Do I Need a Permit

How do you know what requires a building permit?  Take a look around you. Depending on your state and local jurisdiction, you may be surprised.

  • At your place of business you may need a permit if you are installing
  • Office partition that will stand higher than 5'9"
  • Shelving used for used for storage
  • Displays standing over 5'9"
  • Computer racks

If these furnishings stand less than 8' you may only need to get structural calculations as related to over turn and anchoring.  Your Community Building Department will be able to give you a list of information required for a permit.
