Getting a Building Permit

How Do I Get a Building Permit?

An applicant must provide the following:

Three sets of construction drawings signed and sealed by a licensed design professional

Floor plan of building space

Survey of property showing location of building addition (note: previous land development approval is required)

Other information may be required depending on the project’s scope.

What is the permit fee?

The permit fee is based on the cost of the improvement.  For specific information, please contact BIU of PA at 412.766.2565.

How Long Will It Take to Get the Permit?

Once zoning compliance is determined by the Borough, an application that complies with building code requirements must be issued in 30 business days.

Where can I get more information?
