The Innovation Advisory Committee is a group of experts that review energy-efficient proposals not covered in the technical codes. The committee:
The Innovation Advisory Committee is a sub-committee of the Construction Codes Advisory Board.
A recommendation from the committee may include:
A favorable recommendation is helpful to you when our staff reviews your building permit for approval. If your permit application is not approved, the committee’s favorable recommendation will be strongly considered if you appeal our decision to the Construction Codes Advisory Board.
We do not require additional fees for this process. Your permit fees are the same as for regular building projects.
You should allow up to 3 months for the committee review. The amount of time needed will depend on your proposal’s complexity and the information the committee needs to review it.
Contact us at (206) 684-8850 to schedule an Innovative Technology pre-submittal conference before you submit your permit application and before you request committee consideration. The pre-submittal conference will help you simplify your proposal and may even eliminate the need for committee review.
