§ 13-32-310

Permit fees – Computation

a.

Permits requiring plans – Calculation of fee. If building plans or drawings meeting the requirements of Chapter 13-40 are required under this code in order for a permit to be issued or for any type of work described in Tables (C) or (D) of this section, the permit fee shall be calculated using the following formula:

Construction factor

×

Scope of review factor

×

Area of work

Permit fee.

Provided, however, that if the permit fee calculated under this subsection is less than the minimum permit fee indicated in Table 13-32-310(C) or (D), the minimum permit fee indicated in Table 13-32-310(C) or (D), as applicable, shall be assessed.  Provided, further, that if the work identified in the permit application (i) also requires a flat fee under subsection (b) of ths section, and (ii) any column in Table 13-32-310(E) contains the notation “(2)” or “(3)”, the applicable flat fee shall be assessed in addition to the permit fee required under this subsection.  If more than one minimum flat fee applies to the project identified in the permit application, the greater minimum flat fee shall be assessed.  Provided, however, if any applicable column in Table 13-32-310(E) contains the notation “(3)”, all applicable minimum flat fees shall be assessed separately.

For purposes of this subsection (a):

The “construction factor” shall be determined using Table 13-32-310 (A) or (B), as applicable.

The “scope of review factor” shall be determined using Table 13-32-310 (C) or (D), as applicable.

The “area of workshall be calculated based on the nature of the permitted work  to be done, as follows:

For new construction:   The “area of work” means the total square foot area of the building identified in the permit application, measured to the outside finished surface of the exterior walls.  Provided, however, that if an exterior wall is a shared wall, the area of work shall extend to the middle of the shared wall.

The following spaces shall be included in the calculation of the total square foot area of a building: (1) any finished or unfinished basement area with a ceiling height of 5-0 or more; (2) any mezzanine; (3) any penthouse; (4) any enclosed projection from a building, such as a bay, with floor area; (5) any floor area covered by a roof or upper deck, such as an open porch; and (6) any finished or unfinished area under a sloping roof with a ceiling height of 5-0 or more, unless roof trusses prevent any usable space.

The following spaces shall not be included in the calculation of the total square foot area of a building: (1) the area under the overhanging eaves of a building; (2) balconies; and (3) the area of any deck, unless the deck is subject to the requirements of Chapter 4-388 of this code.

Construction built over an existing foundation with no remaining existing structure above grade shall be considered to be new construction.  If a portion of an existing structure remains above grade, the construction shall be considered to be an alteration and/or addition.

For phased construction:   The “area of work” means the scope of work proposed for completion during the specific phase of construction for which a permit is sought and shall be calculated in the same manner that the “area of work” is calculated for new construction. If the scope of work proposed for completion includes the construction of caissons, piles, grade beams, slurrywalls or a full foundation, the area of work shall be the footprint of the building under construction.  If the scope of work proposed for completion includes the construction of floor areas above the foundation but below grade, the area of work shall be the total square foot area of each floor constructed within the perimeter of the foundation.  For purposes of calculating the permit fee for the specific phase of construction for which a permit is sought, any area on phased construction plans submitted for “reference onlyshall not be included in the area of work.

For alterations, renovations or repairs:   The “area of work” means the floor area affected by the intended scope of work.  The affected square foot floor area includes (1) areas of alteration or renovation within the existing volume of space; and (2) areas in which existing elements or building systems are repaired or replaced.

The following spaces shall not be included in the calculation of the area in which the permitted alteration, renovation or repair will occur:  (1) the square footage of the building’s envelope or perimeter walls, if no changes are made to the envelope or perimeter walls from the exterior or interior side of the building’s envelope or walls; and (2) areas in which no work requiring a permit is to be performed; and (3) areas in which piping is installed for the sole purpose of providing utility services to the area of work, if installation of the piping does not alter or require the alteration of the space through which the pipe(s) pass.

If the area of alteration, renovation or repair is unclear or disputed, the demising walls of the space under the control of the permit applicant shall be considered to be the “area of work.”

For additions:   The “area of work” means the total square foot area of the addition identified in the permit application, measured to the outside finished surface of the exterior walls or to the middle of any shared wall.

The following spaces shall be included in the calculation of the total square foot area of an addition: (1) any finished or unfinished basement area with a ceiling height of 5-0 or more; (2) any mezzanine; (3) any penthouse; (4) any enclosed projection from a building, such as a bay, with floor area; (5) any floor area covered by a roof or upper deck, such as an open porch; (6) any finished or unfinished area under a sloping roof with a ceiling height of 5-0 or more, unless roof trusses prevent any usable space; and (7) any area in which other work requiring a permit will occur.

The following spaces shall not be included in the calculation of the total square foot area of an addition: (1) the area under the overhanging eaves of a building; (2) balconies; and (3) the area of any deck, unless the deck is subject to the requirements of Chapter 4-388 of this code.

For decks, porches, stairs, and balconies:   The “area of work” means the total square foot area of the deck, porch, stairs or balcony, measured from the exterior walls of the building to the outside of the railing or, if a deck or stairs lacks railings, to the outside perimeter of the deck or stairs.

For moved buildings:   The “area of work” means the total square foot area of the building identified in the permit application, measured to the outside finished surface of the building’s exterior walls.

The following spaces shall be included in the calculation of the total square foot area of a moved building:  (1) any finished or unfinished basement area with a ceiling height of 5-0 or more; (2) any mezzanine; (3) any penthouse; (4) any enclosed projection from a building, such as a bay, with floor area; (5) any floor area covered by a roof or upper deck, such as an open porch; and (6) any finished or unfinished area under a sloping roof with a ceiling height of 5-0 or more, unless roof trusses prevent any usable space.

The following spaces shall not be included in the calculation of the total square foot area of a moved building:  (1) the area under the overhanging eaves of a building; (2) balconies; and (3) the area of any deck, unless the deck is a rooftop deck subject to the requirements of Chapter 4-388 of this code.

For facade work:   If the work to be permitted involves the entire facade of any exterior wall of a building, the “area of work” means the total square foot area of each exterior wall on which such facade work will be done, measured from the point where the building intersects the ground to the top of the parapet or to the intersection between the wall and an overhanging roof.  If the work to be permitted involves only a portion of any exterior wall of a building, the “area of work” means the total square foot area of each such portion of the exterior wall on which such facade work will be done and the surrounding area that will be disturbed by such work, measured by multiplying the height of each such portion times the width of each such portion on the plane of the facade.  Provided, however, that if the permitted work to be done involves facade work on 75% or more of an exterior wall of the building, such work shall be deemed to involve the entire facade of such exterior wall and shall be measured accordingly.
