Commercial ePermits in Arlington
If you are a contractor, you must provide more documents for commercial projects due to their complexity. The process for submitting a commercial electronic permit application includes:
- For commercial projects, review submission requirements.
- If the commercial project is for an establishment that prepares, serves, or sells food, or the project includes a water recreation facility (pool, spa, or interactive fountain): then the applicant will be required to pay a health review fee upon the acceptance of the building permit documents for plan review.
- Each plan sheet must be uploaded as an individual PDF file. The construction set should NOT be submitted as one file. Specification sheets can be uploaded as a single PDF file.
- All documents submitted for review must be saved as searchable PDF files.
- A 3 in. x 3 in. blank space is required at the top-right corner of each submitted document. This space is for Arlington County’s approval stamp, which is applied at permit issuance.
- Plan sheets must be 11 in. x 17 in. minimum size and 1/8 in. minimum scale.
- Unless the permit holder is the contractor licensed in Virginia for the scope of work on the permit OR the permit holder is the property owner and present for all steps of the permitting process, the party that applies for and/or picks up the permit will need to have a Permit Authorization Affidavit.
