Building Grade Certificates

A building grade certificate is a drawing that is provided to the contractors/developers at the time a Building Permit is issued. This drawing provides lot dimensions, service locations, service elevations, sidewalk and lane elevations and landscape grading information.

This information is used by the contractor/developer to ensure that building and site grades are set appropriately so that the house has a proper gravity sanitary hook-up and that proper drainage is maintained on the lot. Charges for this certificate are tied to the Building Permit Application.

Copies of building grade certificates can be obtained from the Engineering Customer Service Section at 403-342-8161.
