Information for Submitting a Permit Application for Commercial Construction
Prior to submitting a Building Permit application, contact the following city departments for their preliminary review and obtain their signatures on the Commercial Preliminary Approval Signature Form.
- Your first step is to obtain preliminary approval from Herriman City Planning and Zoning. Make sure you have contacted them for all required reviews at (801)446-5323 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Also see their webpage here.
- Fire Impact Fee Collection Form – when signed by the Building Official, you will need to take it with your payment directly to SLVFSA then bring signed page from them back to our office before permit can be issued (we typically send this to you with the invoice when the permit is ready).
- When the project has received approval from Planning and Zoning, submit to the Engineering Department four (4) sets of civil plans. The plans will need to be approved, and fees and bonds paid through the Engineering Department before any construction may begin. Contact the Engineering Department at (801)446-5323 or email@example.com for other requirements.
- The project will also need to be reviewed by Herriman City Municipal Water Department for their preliminary approval – (801)446-5323 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Permit Application Requirements
Once the project has received approval from all other city departments and you have the Commercial Preliminary Approval Signature Form signed by each department, submit to the Building Department along with the following:
- A completed Permit Application Form
- Two (2) copies of the site plan (even if previously submitted to the Planning or Engineering Department) including all ADA compliance requirements, and parking with signage and striping details.
- Two (2) sets of printed construction plans and an electronic version in pdf format (all pages of the plans must be wet stamped by the architect, the engineer stamps the structural pages, the electrical engineer stamps the electrical pages and the mechanical engineer stamps the mechanical pages)
- Two (2) copies of all supporting documentation (may include but not limited to structural calcs, project manual, energy analysis documents, soils report, etc.)
- Valuation of project including costs for labor and materials but not including cost of land (can be signed contract or bid sheet)
