Commercial building permit plan examination
The City of Winnipeg Charter requires that all plans for construction be audited for compliance with the Manitoba Building Code and other applicable codes, standards, and bylaws before a building permit is issued.
Commercial plan examination audits building permit applications submitted by contractors, developers, architects, professional engineers, and residents.
In some cases, an application may be audited to confirm it aligns with prior development permit approvals. This may include an audit by Water and Waste, Public Works, the Fire Paramedic Service, and or Urban Planning & Design. If the construction drawing package for building permit application does not align with prior development permit and supporting application approvals:
- the building permit, if issued, will be considered null and void
- you will be required to seek revised approvals to align all applications
Once compliance is demonstrated, your building permit application will be approved. A building permit will be issued providing permissions to begin construction.
