Occupancy Permits

When building a new home or making significant changes and additions to Commercial property you will receive an Occupancy Permit after all requirements of the Final Inspection are met.

YOUR OCCUPANCY PERMIT SIGNALS THE END OF CONSTRUCTION BUT ALSO LISTS THE REQUIREMENTS OF ANY ESSENTIAL SERVICES WITHIN THE BUILDING THAT NEED TO BE MAINTAINED

For commercial buildings your Occupancy Permit will list active and passive fire protection and life safety elements of the building that require regular maintenance for the life of the building. It is a requirement of all Commercial Property Owners to maintain the essential services of their building and record this maintenance in a log book for reference. We provide ESM maintenance inspection and log book services so if you are unsure of your obligations or simply desire for a third party to take care of the inspections and records for you, contact us today.
