Submit an application to construct an alteration in an existing commercial space.
A Building Permit is required to construct a new building or structure, or to demolish, relocate, repair, alter or make additions to an existing one.
Use this application if you want to:
- renovate an existing commercial space.
This typically means that you plan to:
- alter an existing commercial space prior to operating your business in this space, or
- you want to alter a space in which you already operate your business.
To change the use of a commercial or industrial space (for example changing a warehouse to retail), a Building Code Datasheet is required to be submitted with your Commercial Tenant Improvement application. See samples of required information below:
- Sample Change of Use - Building Code Datasheet
- Sample GFA, Tenant & Parking Analysis
- Sample Washroom Load Calculation
If public washrooms within the building are used for the space, a washroom load calculation is also required when changing the use of a commercial or industrial space, to ensure that there are enough public washrooms for the proposed change of use. A sample washroom load calculation can be found here.
For all Commercial Tenant Renovation permits in Whistler Village, a Whistler Village Construction Management Strategy is required. Complete this form and submit it in conjunction with your Commercial Tenant Renovation application.
