A Commercial Building Permit is needed for the following improvements:
Apply for a commercial building permit, by submitting the following information for review and approval:
It is our goal to review and return comments for commercial and industrial permits within 10 working days (starting the first working day after submittal). This allows all reviewing departments an opportunity to review and submit comments to Building Codes. The reviewing departments include: Planning, Building Codes, Fire Department, Public Works and Municipal Services. Incomplete applications or incorrect information may delay plan review and permitting.
Commercial Plan Review Contacts (provided by the Planning Division)
Remodel, tenant finish, building addition, addendums or revisions to plans must be accompanied by a descriptive narrative of the project.
Tenant Finish/Remodel: three sets of plans (include all architectural, mechanical, electrical and plumbing details). Attach pages 9 & 10 of the Phased Permit Submittal Checklist and electronic media as described above. All necessary paperwork will be reviewed by staff at time of submittal for completeness and may be rejected if incomplete in order to meet our goal of a three-day turnaround on tenant finish projects.
Footing/Foundation Only: Submit Footing/Foundation Application, four sets of sealed site plans, erosion control plan, footing, foundation, elevations and any electrical, mechanical and plumbing underslab details, and two soils reports. A letter of risk will be required releasing the City of Olathe from any liability, in the event at building permit issuance, the foundation or underslab is found to not be in compliance.
Plan Review Fee: (Check payable to City of Olathe), based on square footage of your project.
