New Construction & Additions
In short, permit fees for new construction and building additions are $1.50 per $1,000 of construction cost + $100.
In order to ensure consistency, the most recent Building Valuation Data Table published by the International Code Council is used when determining construction costs. An example of this table can be found below. This table represents the industry average construction cost per square foot based on occupancy type and building construction.
There are many variables in determining occupancy type. Your occupancy type is determined based on the information and construction documents you provide.
Calculating a permit fee: (Square Foot Construction Cost x Square Footage) x .0015 + $100 = Permit Fee
Remodels and Alterations
There is no industry standard to compare remodel and alteration costs. Therefore, the actual project cost is used in calculating fees.
Permit fee: (Actual project cost x .0015) + $100 = Permit Fee
