Building Permits

Commercial Permits

Commercial permits are used for new commercial construction, remodels, tenant improvements, change of use, and change of occupant. Included with the application is a checklist which may not apply to all projects. The City of Sequim adopted the 2018 Washington State Building Code as well as local regulations per SMC Chapter 15.04.  Applicants are encouraged to use these resources throughout their project to ensure they are within compliance.
