Building Permits

A building permit is required to ensure code compliance for structural integrity and minimum life safety for building, plumbing, mechanical, and electrical systems. Building permit submittals may require site plans, floor plans, and other building elements.

If you’re not sure your project requires a permit, call 605-367-8670 to ask. If a permit is required, the cost starts at $40 and may be higher based on the project’s total cost.
