Please consider the amount of time it takes for a permit application to be received by us when mailed via standard mail and add that time to the 4-5 weeks it typically takes for a permit application to be inputted into our system and be reviewed by a building inspector. Once your permit application has been  reviewed you will be notified by email of the outcome.

The Building Inspection Division administers the permitting of residential and commercial construction within the community in conformance with national, state and local building and zoning codes. The goal is to improve public safety by ensuring that new construction adheres to existing building codes.

New building construction and/or alteration or repair of an existing building requires a building and mechanical permit. In accordance with the State of Connecticut Basic Building Code and the West Hartford Zoning Ordinance, permits are also required for air conditioning, heating, sprinkler, electric wiring, and plumbing.

A building permit is required for any new building, addition, temporary building, demolition, or pool installation. A permit is required if you plan to alter a building by cutting a portion of a wall, removing or cutting any structural beam or load bearing support, or change any required means of entering or exiting. Building and Mechanical permit applications are found under the resources link.

Permits are also required for warm air, air conditioning, heating ventilation, sprinkler, electric systems and plumbing. When making an application for a building permit, the process can be expedited by coming in when inspectors are available, which are between the hours 8:00-9:00 AM and 1:00-2:00 PM.

The Building Inspection Office offers informational handouts and permits that can be downloaded to help you with your project. Click on the RESOURCES link.
