Boone County Commercial Building Inspection Fee Schedules

Fees for new construction and additions are based upon the value of the construction performed or the minimum valuations as determined by the attached Minimum Valuation Table whichever is greater.

 

Fees applied for base construction do not cover HVAC, Plumbing, Electric, and specialized systems listed under the attached schedule titled, Permit fees for specialized system reviews.

 

Fee Determination

Example:

Type of Construction: IIB              Use Group: A-2

Square Footage: 10,000               Actual cost of construction: $999,000

 

Step 1:   Given the type of construction and use group a minimum square foot valuation of $86.00 a square foot is derived from the Minimum Valuation Chart.

 

Step 2:  The minimum valuation of the project is determined by multiplying the square footage of the structure by the cost factor found in step one.  10,000 Sq. Ft. X $86.00= $860,000

 

Step 3:  The minimum valuation found in Step 2 is now compared to the actual cost of construction to determine which is greater.

Actual cost of Construction $999,000>$860,000 Calculated Minimum Valuation

 

Step 4:  Use the determined greater valuation in this case the actual cost of construction to determine the permit fee per the Commercial Building Permit Fee Schedule.  The fee is determined to be $1,500.
