- BUILDING PERMIT EXEMPTION FOR FIRE SYSTEM PLANS -
Exemption from the Building Permit requirement only applies to fire protection system installations, modifications, or device replacements when no construction requiring a building permit is happening in conjunction with the fire protection system work.
The reason for not having a Building Permit must be clearly stated in the Scope of Work Letter submitted with the plans.
Note: All Access Control System plans are required to have an associated Building Permit.
If there is not an active Building Permit related to an Access Control System installation or modification, one must be issued by the Commercial Building Review division of the Development Services Department before the system plans can be submitted to AFD for review. Please call 311 to reach the Development Services Department for more information on obtaining a Building Permit.
