Fees

Building permit calculations can be difficult at times as there may be many variables involved in some projects. The methods and fees below are general guild-lines for permit fee calculations. However, the permit fee amount will ultimately be determined and set by the Code Official!   

Building Permit Calculation Method
Based on the International Code Council's Building Valuation Data - August 2009

New Construction

Gross Area x Construction Cost x Fee Multiplier of .0029
Example (1500 sq.ft. home x $100.00 per sq.ft. x .0029 = $435.00)

Alterations/ Renovation to existing Residential dwellings
Gross Area x Construction Cost x .25 x Fee multiplier of .0029
Example (1500 sq. ft. home x $100.00 x .25 x .0029 = $108.75)
