           Tenant Improvement - Submittal Requirements
This checklist provides information regarding the minimum requirements necessary before submitting a
tenant improvement to Building Services for plan review and permit issue. If complete, we will accept
your project. Incomplete projects that do not contain the minimum requirements will not be accepted.

When all minimum requirements contained in this checklist are complete you are ready to submit for
plan review. The design professional is required to schedule a plan intake meeting by calling Building
Services at (208) 887-2211. In this meeting, we will review your submittals to determine if we have all
of the required information. If complete, we will accept your submittals. The submittal fee is $150 for
all tenant improvements. This is non-refundable and included as a portion of the plan review fees.

After the project has been submitted and all plan reviews are complete the applicant will be notified that
the permit is available for pick up. The permit is typically issued within 15 business days or less after
the plan intake meeting for major tenant improvements. Minor tenant improvements meeting certain
criteria will be complete within 3 business days. Sometimes additional review time is necessary. The
total permit fee will be required when the permit is received.

Applicants shall submit plans to Ada County Highway District for major tenant improvements. For
minor tenant improvements please see item 1.5 on page 2. You must submit page 8 of this checklist
with the required items to ACHD. Your building permit will not be issued until ACHD provides
Meridian Building Services with the “impact fee certificate” or “impact fee assessment”.

If food is stored, handled or manufactured, Central District Health Department approval is required prior
to your submittal to Meridian Building Services.

All plan submittals must be stamped (sealed), dated and signed by an Idaho state licensed architect
regardless of size. Stamped & signed mechanical drawings from a licensed mechanical engineer are
required for spray booths, woodworking areas, classrooms, nail salons, kitchens and automotive repair
facilities. Additional submittals may be required at any time if determined necessary by the Building

Every tenant improvement requires a simple Meridian Planning Department sign off. In some instances,
a use change for a tenant improvement could require an application and approval with the Planning

Commercial shell and core projects must be approved and the building permit issued before you may
submit a tenant improvement project at the same location. The shell must have received a letter of
substantial completion (LSC) from Building Services before a certificate of occupancy (CO) will be
issued for any tenant improvement within the shell building. Please verify with Building Services.
