Improvements to Building Permit approvals process

Calgary Building Services is taking steps to expedite the Building Permit approvals process for commercial multi-family buildings, to save applicants time and effort.

Our first step is conducting a quality and completeness check when an application is submitted. Safety Codes Officers will review the application to ensure all the necessary documents and information are included. In effect, this will clarify the requirements up front and help reduce the number of resubmissions and expedite the process as applications move through the process.

For information regarding complete application requirement lists, please visit the following sections on the Building and Developments lists and forms webpage.

Further improvements are planned to achieve our service improvement goals. Over the coming months, we’ll be enhancing our web content and creating new educational materials. We’ll keep you informed throughout the process.
