New Construction Process

New construction includes construction projects for new structures and the redevelopment of land within the city limits. Commercial and multi-family properties are included. A preapplication/concept review and site development plan review are required.

Other Departments


 Please check with the Planning/Zoning Department and the Engineering Department to determine requirements prior to submitting plans and/or permits to the Building Department. This will save time for all parties involved in the overall project.
 

Building Permit Plan Reviews


Most building projects in the City of Gallatin including new construction, remodeling and repairs require a building permit plan review to evaluate the projects before permits are issued. There are some instances where only a trade specific permit is issued with no review required.

Building Inspections


All construction must be inspected for compliance with all adopted International Code Council building codes, local ordinances, and the State of Tennessee requirements in the areas of structural, electrical, mechanical, and plumbing. These inspections are handled by our Building Inspections staff.

Schedule an Inspection


If your project is complete and you have portal access, use our self-service center to schedule an inspection.

Check on the Status of an Inspection


To check on the status of an inspection, view the status at least 24 hours after the inspection.
