Building Permits and Inspections

Building permits are required for building, structural, electrical, HVAC, and plumbing projects. They help to ensure that your space is safe for your team and your customers.

Making your business accessible not only helps your customers, it’s also federal and state law. The ADA and Georgia state requirements are in place to ensure that people with disabilities or other impairments have equal access to businesses and other public facilities. Be sure to learn about the requirements upfront to make it easier for your customers and protect yourself from potential lawsuits.
