Building Permit Fees

Building Valuation Data (BVD)Fee
$1-$2,000$75
$2,001 to $10,000$75 plus $8 per $1,000 over $2,000
$10,001 to $100,000$165 plus $3 per $1,000 over $10,000
$100,001 to $500,000$435 plus $2 per $1,000 over $100,000
$500,001+$1,235 plus $3 per $1000 over $500,000
InspectionsOne (1) inspection is included in the base fee.
Additional inspections are $100 each.

Building permit fees are based off of the average construction value of you project, determined by the square footage.
In order to calculate the construction value, several pieces of information are required:
– Construction Type
– Use Group
– Gross Area
This information is used to locate the average construction cost per sq. ft. in the table linked here (account registration required to view).  This table is updated regularly by the International Code Council.
The average cost / sq. ft. is multiplied by the gross area to arrive at the construction value.  That value is then run through the fee schedule to get a permit fee.  Any additional inspections are in addition to this fee.

Example:
Construction Type: IIIB
Gross Area: 8,000 Sq. Ft.
Use Group: A-2, Restaurant

8,000 sq. ft. x 193.14 = $1,545,120.00
Given this construction value, we’ll use the last row of the table:

$1,235 plus $3 per $1,000 over $500,000

Step 1: 1,545,120 – 500,000 = 1,045,120
Step 2: 1,045,120 / 1,000 = 1,045.12
Step 3: 1,045.12 * 3 = 3,135.36
Step 4: 3,135.36 + 1,235 = $4,370.36

Permit fees are rounded to the nearest dollar, so this leaves us with a base permit fee of $4,370.00.
One (1) inspection is included in the base fee, and additional inspection are $100 each, and must be added to this fee to reach the total amount due.
Plan review fees may also be assessed as described in this Fee Schedule.
