Building Permits

All Building Permit applications start and end with the City's Inspectional Services Department (ISD), (617) 349-6100. If required by ISD, building projects may require the Department of Traffic, Parking & Transportation (TP&T) to review the application.

Before coming to TP&T:

  1. Review the TP&T Building Permit Guidelines and City Bicycle Parking Guide.
  2. Complete an Interdepartmental Parking Facility Registration Form as required per City Ordinance 10.18.
  3. Complete the TP&T Building Permit Application review check-list.

Submit all materials to Adam Shulman, TP&T Transportation Planner, who can be reached at (617) 349-4745, at 344 Broadway, 2nd Floor. Include the contact name and phone number of person knowledgeable about the project. Materials will be reviewed before TP&T signs off.
