Engineering Construction Permits
During the implementation of Phase I Construction Restart, no NEW permit applications are being accepted at this time. If a construction permit relates to an existing permitted project, prior to the Governor’s order of March 23, 2020, it will be accepted. New permit applications are only allowed if the construction work is deemed essential, such as public facilities and emergencies, as outlined in the Governor’s clarification on March 25, 2020.
If your project meets the stated requirements, please email your completed forms to the Permit Specialist email provided in the top left corner of the application. Engineering permit applications are listed below. Compliance to COVID-19 mandates has created longer processing times for permits.
To schedule an inspection, your project must have permits issued prior to March 23, 2020. We accept requests only for existing, low-risk construction projects, not requiring workers to be closer than six-feet, and has developed an exposure control, mitigation, and recovery plan*. Inspections for permitted work deemed essential, as outlined in the Governor’s clarification on March 25, 2020, such as public facilities and emergencies are also accepted. To schedule an inspection, call 425-775-9694. Please have your permit number and address ready.
*Washington State Department of Labor & Industries will enforce requirements for contractors to comply with comprehensive COVID-19 exposure control, mitigation, recovery plans and safety practices.
