Hi there, I live in Denver Colorado. We’re currently submitting for building permit for an office fitup and just wondering how long the city normally takes to review and approve building permits?
Hello! The time it takes for the city to review and approve building permits can vary depending on a number of factors, such as the complexity of the project, the workload of the city’s building department, and the completeness of the application. However, in Denver, the city’s website states that the review process for a standard commercial building permit takes approximately 20 business days. It’s always a good idea to check with your local building department to get a more accurate estimate based on the specifics of your project. Good luck with your office fitup!
Thank you for your comment! Can you please clarify what specifically you are asking about in regards to Chicago? Are you asking about construction and engineering projects in the city, or are you asking about regulations and permits related to construction and engineering in Chicago? I would be happy to provide more information once I have a better understanding of your question.
What about permit timelines in Chicago?
Thanks for your question! Permit timelines in Chicago can vary depending on the type of permit and the complexity of the project. Generally, the city’s Department of Buildings aims to review and issue permits within 30 days of receiving a complete application. However, this timeline can be extended if additional information or revisions are required. It’s always a good idea to check with the Department of Buildings for the most up-to-date information and to ensure that you have all the necessary documentation to submit a complete application. Let me know if you have any other questions!
I’m not in Denver but I know that our above grade structure permits can take months!!! THey slow down every project.
In Canada they vary from 4-6 weeks up to 3-4 months depending upon the phase.
The same in the GB.
What about in Chicago?
