COMMERCIAL PLAN REVIEW

Building Plans

New construction or additions to commercial, industrial, and certain multifamily residential buildings must first be reviewed by the City of Sun Prairie Planning Division for site plan approval and any necessary conditional use allowances / permits. This also applies to any change of occupancy or use of existing commercial and industrial buildings.

  • Building Construction
  • Building Construction Components
  • Building HVAC Systems
  • Means of Egress Illumination
  • Energy Conservation
  • Fire Sprinkler Systems
  • Fire Alarm Systems
  • Plumbing Systems

Effective September 1, 2021, all plan review conducted by the Division is now online via our OpenGov Citizen Services portal.    

You will need to upload all plans and supporting documents during the application process.  The application will be reviewed and fee payment will be required prior to review.

-Building, Mechanical, or Fire Plan Compliance Statement (PDF) is required for certain projects prior to final inspection.  At this time this form will need to be uploaded to your application via your OpenGov dashboard at the conclusion of the project.  This will convert to an online form at a future date.
