How to apply?

Submit an application to Building that identifies the property, lists the name of any architect or engineer who will work on the project, and describes the proposed work in detail. Along with that application, submit four sets of the following:

  • Roof plan showing the proposed location of the skylight
  • Floor plan showing the room in which the skylight will be located
  • Framing details showing how rafters and ceiling joists will be affected
  • Electrical details if your skylight installation affects wiring.

A separate handout entitled Plan Requirements describes requirements in greater detail and gives you examples of how the various plans should be drawn.

What fees must I pay?

You must pay Building, electrical, plan check, filing, and microfilm fees, and possibly a Planning fee.
