Permit & Plan Review Fees

Permit and plan review fees are set forth in the adopted fire code and are, in most cases, based on the subcontractor’s valuation of the work to be performed under the permit. Below are some generalizations pertaining to how fees are assessed by the Fire Prevention Division. However, you may contact the Fire Prevention Division at 720-887-8217  at any time during normal business hours to get the exact amounts for your plan review and permit fees.

Plan review fees for fire protection systems and other plans requiring the issuance of a construction permit are now collected up-front by the Fire District at the time that the plans are submitted to the fire district for review. Failure to provide payment for the plan review fee at the time of submittal will prevent the fire district from accepting your plans. Permit fees are collected after plans have been approved and prior to the permit being released to the subcontractor by the fire district. If a set of plans is disapproved, the fire district retains the initially collected plan review fee for that review and assesses fees for subsequent reviews based on a fee schedule of $50.00 per hour for the amount of time it takes the Fire Prevention Division to complete the review. Those additional plan review fees would be required to be collected prior to the permit being released by the fire district.

Fees associated with the review of building construction or tenant finish construction plans submitted to the fire district are not collected upfront but rather are based on a fee schedule of $50.00 per hour for the amount of time it takes the Fire Prevention Division to complete the review. These fees will be invoiced to the applicant upon completion of the review.
