Keep in mind that commercial construction is not the same as residential construction. There are additional fire, safety, ADA and health codes applied to the construction phases to ensure the structure is safe and accessible for multiple occupants. In addition, commercial structures must receive a formal Certificate of Occupancy to conduct business within the structure. For these reasons, you may want to seek professional assistance from a Licensed Commercial Contractor or Architect to help navigate you through the planning, permitting, inspection and Certificate of Occupancy requirements. While we cannot recommend a particular specialist, we have provided the following links for you to find a specialist:
