PITTSBURGH BUILDING PERMITS 

For those looking to undertake a construction project in Pittsburgh, either residential or commercial, there is a requirement to submit and receive approval for a building permit.

The city has opened up an online portal called OneStopPGH that allows residents and contractors to submit an application for an electronic building permit in Pittsburgh.

Residential ePermits in Pittsburgh

Residents and contractors that are building or renovating their homes will have to receive a building permit prior to beginning their project.

The submission process includes compiling all the information about the project including the Master Building Permit Number, electrical contractor and the plans from a certified architect.

A residential building permit is required for the following work on a residential building or structure:

  • Renovate and repair an existing single family or two-family dwelling.
  • Construct an addition to an existing single family or two-family dwelling.
  • Construct a new structure including a new single family or two-family dwelling or accessory structure.

A commercial building permit is required for the following work on a commercial building or structure:

  • Renovate and repair an existing building or structure
  • Construct an addition to an existing building or structure
  • Construct a new structure or accessory structure.

New Construction Work Type:

  • New Building Complete: applies to the complete construction of a new building or structure under a single building permit.
  • New Building Phased: applies to the construction of a new building or structure under separate permits for each phase. 
  • Site Work: applies to modifications to the site beyond those directly associated with the construction of the building.  This would exclude excavation for the foundation.
  • Accessory Structure – applies to the construction of accessory structures in association with the primary building or structure.  

Who Can Submit an Electronic Building Permit Application in Pittsburgh?

Any homeowner, architect or a licensed contractor can apply to the City of Pittsburgh for an ePermit by providing enough information to describe the project fully and clearly.
