A building grade certificate is a drawing that is issued to the contractors/developers at the time a Building Permit is issued. This drawing provides lot dimensions, service locations, service elevations, sidewalk and lane elevations and landscape grading information. This information is used by the contractor/developer to ensure that building and site grades are set appropriately so that the house has a proper gravity sanitary hook-up and that proper drainage is maintained on the lot. Charges for this certificate are tied to the Building Permit Application.
