Building Permits

REQUIRED PERMITS: Section 105.1 of the 2012 IBC states:

"Any owner or authorized agent who intends to construct, enlarge, alter, repair, move, demolish, or change the occupancy of a building or structure, or to erect, install, enlarge, alter, repair, remove, convert or replace any electrical, gas, mechanical or plumbing system, the installation of which is regulated by this code, or to cause any such work to be done, shall first make application to the building official and obtain the required permit."

WORK COMMENCING BEFORE PERMIT ISSUANCE: Section 109.4 of the 2012 IBC states: 

"Any person who commences any work on a building, structure, electrical, gas, mechanical or plumbing system before obtaining the necessary permits shall be subject to a fee established by the building official that shall be in addition to the required permit fees."
 

The Town of Bennett is pleased to offer a "One Stop" building permit for certain projects.  See if your project qualifies!

Electrical License Contemporaneous Review Guidelines

You may print and complete all pages of the building permit application and return them to the Town of Bennett in person or by mail. You may also complete the electronic form and return by email.  Send the completed application to the Town of Bennett Building Department by:

  •     hand delivery (during regular business hours)
  •     USPS - mail (401 S First Street, Bennett 80102)
  •     email (saragon@bennett.co.us)

A representative will process the application and notify you of the fee to be paid by cash, check or online with a credit card.  Credit cards cannot be taken over the phone.

Once payment has been received, a receipt, permit and permit card will be completed and work may commence.

Failure to obtain a permit prior to beginning work will result in the permit fees doubling.
