All subcontractors working on construction projects are required to obtain a permit. This includes plumbing, mechanical/HVAC, electrical, low-voltage electrical, fire alarm systems, and fire sprinkler systems. Subcontractors may submit their forms once the general construction permit has been issued.

Required Documents

  • State license (as applicable), business license, and government-issued photo ID of sub-contractor if submitting with Dunwoody for the first time

Applicable Codes
Chapter 16: Land Development Ordinance 
Chapter 27: Zoning Ordinance 


Review Process
Fire alarm and fire sprinkler plans require fire safety review which typically takes up to 10 business days. Please submit 1 hard copy plus 1 electronic copy of the plans. All other sub-contractor permits can be issued over-the-counter if the general construction permit has been issued.

Additionally, sub-contract permits (with the exception of fire alarm and fire sprinkler) may be applied for by mail with a check for fee payment.

Fee Payment
You may pay your fees (by check, cash, Visa, or MasterCard). To estimate your fees, you can review the Fee Schedule page. Please check with our office for your exact fee amount based on the project.
