Tenant finish/remodeling permits

If you are applying in person for a tenant finish or remodeling permit, you will need:

  • Completed building permit application.

  • Four sets of plans with each page sealed with an architect’s or engineer’s seal and signature (at least one set must have the original seal and signatures on each page).

  • A certificate of occupancy application, if the tenant is new to the space or changing the area of the space being occupied– there is no additional fee if you file this with your building permit application. If the tenant already occupies the space and is remodeling within the existing footprint, then you do not need a certificate of occupancy.

  • Current applicable licenses

Plan review

As part of the building permit application process, we will conduct a plan review to ensure your project meets our building codes. During this process, we’ll review site plans, floor plans, mechanical, engineering, plumbing, landscaping, civil engineering and ADA compliance, among other items.


Your project will require one or more inspections by a city building inspector. You must schedule your inspection at least one business day in advance:

  • Online through our Application and Permitting Portal. (Appointments for final inspections should be scheduled by phone)

  • By calling customer service at 913.477.7500 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
