New one and two family dwelling construction, commonly called the “one-stop permit process” is organized with the professional home builder in mind. This permitting process is intended to expedite the issuance of building permits for new one and two family dwellings. This does not mean that the process is not intended for the one-time owner builder. 


All multi-family (more than two dwelling units) and commercial building projects go through a formal plan review, permitting and inspection process.  Construction documents, special inspections and structural observation programs and other data shall be submitted with each application for plan review and building permit. The construction documents shall be prepared by a design professional registered with the State of Missouri. For detailed information on the plan review process, see the links below.
