Combination permit defined.  A permit that is issued to the general contractor or the primary contractor and includes the subcontractor's valuation and fees as a part of the permit. Only a combination permit shall be issued where more than one category of work, such as building, electrical, plumbing, or HVAC, is involved.

 

            Exception:  The building official may allow separate permits to be issued when a general contractor is not required for the scope of work involved, or when the building official finds good cause.

 

Separate commercial permits  When work is done by a subcontractor and is not part of a combination permit, the valuation used to determine the permit fee will be based on the actual contract value of the work being done. If the work is part of a combination permit and the subcontractor's contract value is unknown, the value will be assumed to be ten (10) percent of the overall combination permit valuation for each contractor.

 

Residential combination permits for single family detached or attached homes.   When a combination permit is issued for a new single-family dwelling unit, the fee assessed for the electrical, heating, and plumbing subcontractors shall be equal to thirty (30) percent of the calculated building permit fee.
