In the "Work and Construction" phase of your project with an existing building permit, you may need to make changes to your original plans. To do this, you must apply for plans resubmission through a supplemental building permit application. This article will guide you through the process.

Step 1: Initiating Plans Resubmission

1.1. Ensure your project is in the "Work & Construction" workspace, and the current status of your application is "Permit Issued."

1.2. From the "More Actions" drop-down list at the top of the workspace header, select "Apply for plans resubmission."

1.3. Confirm your intention by choosing "Yes."

Step 2: Creating a Supplemental Application

2.1. The data from your original building permit application will be copied into the draft supplemental application, which starts in the "Draft" step.

2.2. All the current workspaces related to the supplemental application can be found under "Related Workspaces."

Step 3: Completing the Supplemental Application

3.1. The "Required Tasks" progress bar will guide you through the necessary steps before submitting the application to the municipal building department.

3.2. In the example below, the progress bar indicates that the application form must be completed.

3.3. Navigate to the "Application Data" section and expand it. Fill out the required form and sign it digitally by clicking the "Sign Off" button.
