Permit Process

After a building permit application is submitted to DCRA, plan review workflow is assigned to the project.  All projects 10,000 square feet or greater are assigned "green reviews" and as applicable are reviewed to the Energy Conservation Code (ECC) and either the Green Building Act (GBA) or Green Construction Code (GCC). All projects less than 10,000 square feet are assigned an "energy review" and are reviewed to the Energy Conservation Code.

Learn more about what is required for "green review" and "energy review" in the Green Building Program Manual.
