Simplified Commercial Inpsections Permit Checklist

Commercial, Industrial, & Multi-Family Dwellings Permit Application Procedure Checklist

  • Have all your plans been signed and sealed by a design professional? All commercial projects, unless meeting certain criteria under the Pennsylvania Uniform Construction Code must be reviewed, signed, and sealed by a design professional.
  • Additions or alterations to an existing building must be submitted with plans showing any previous approvals by L&I or the local building code department. Have you included one set of these plans in your submittal?
  • Do your plans show all the construction disciplines on your project such as architectural, accessibility, structural, mechanical, electrical, energy, plumbing, fire protection, and site plans?
  • Have you provided three complete sets of documentation?
  • On the ABI website is a form UCC-2 that serves as a checklist for all construction disciplines in all commercial projects. This may be completed electronically by your design professional and printed out. For any item that applies to your project check that item off on the UCC-2 and then provide documentation on the plans to support that item for construction. If you do not have this form one will be provided for you at your request.
  • Have you completed all zoning, land development, storm water management, highway occupancy, as well as water and sewer requirements?
  • It is very important that you provide complete contact information for all persons who wish to receive copies of the plan reviews. Provide names, addresses, phone numbers, fax numbers and if possible e-mail addresses of all parties.

You can not provide too much detail but you can provide too little in order to do a thorough plan review. This checklist provides the minimum information required for permit submittal.

Do not submit the permit until you have provided all the required minimum submittal information. If you are unsure of your submittal please call or visit our website.
