Stage 4: Permit Drawings

Stage 4: Permit Drawings

Permit drawings are a set of drawings required to obtain a building permit with your municipality, which VELD architect can provide. Permit drawing sets are often much smaller and less detailed that construction drawing sets. Depending on the type of project, you may require an architect and an engineer to sign-off on your permit drawings.

Why do I need them?

Your municipality will have a set of requirements that need to be submitted before you can start building. They will get you a building permit, but they are not necessarily detailed enough to have a contractor price and build your project just the way you want it.

What do permit drawings contain?

Permit drawings contain the following building code information:

  • Exiting details
  • Stair dimensions
  • Basic sitting on the property
  • Basic structural diagrams
  • Fire ratings (for more complex buildings)
