Certificate of Value Instructions
Note: All commercial permits require a Certificate of Value.
Scope of Work and Project Values: Permit applicants must indicate whether the scope of work and
values submitted are initial or final and sign the form. Initial values should be within 80% of the expected final value. Final values must be the contract value of all work performed, including change orders.
Structural Permits: Applicants must complete the Project Value line and show a breakdown of the
component trades for Electrical, Plumbing, Mechanical, Fire Sprinkler and Fire Alarm. Project Value is the total of all construction work the permit was issued for (including overhead and profit), as well as all finish work, painting, roofing, electrical, plumbing, heating, air conditioning, elevators, fire extinguishing systems and any other permanent equipment.
Plumbing/ Mechanical/ Electrical Permits: Applicants must complete only the lines appropriate to their contract. Structural items, if included in the contract, may not be subtracted out for fee calculation. All items covered by the appropriate code(s) must be used for fee calculation, including items such as process piping, medical gas piping, and any permanent equipment.
