A construction permit or building permit is a permit required in most jurisdictions for new constructions. Generally, a preliminary form is filled out and turned into the permitting office. They will notify all parties involved to see what agencies are affected in this particular project. At this time any agency that needs additional information will contact the construction company to satisfy their concerns. The new construction must be inspected during construction and after completion to ensure compliance with national, regional, and local building codes. Failure to obtain a permit can result in significant fines and penalties, and even demolition of unauthorized construction if it cannot be made to meet code.
