A building permit is a license which grants legal permission to start a construction project. Building permits provide a means for the Building Division to reduce the potential hazards of unsafe construction, therefore ensuring the public health, safety and welfare. Before any construction work begins on a new structure, remodel or renovation project, an application for a building permit should be made, reviewed & permit issued.

The City of College Station requires contractors to register prior to obtaining a building permit.

In order to register, sub-contractors must provide a copy of their state license, a Certificate of Insurance, the registration fee and a completed  contractor registration form. General contractors must provide a completed contractor registration form and the registration fee.
