A-302.6 Foundation Permit
JUMP TO FULL CODE CHAPTER
The code official is authorized to issue a permit for the construction of foundations before the construction documents for the entire structure have been submitted provided the zoning permit for the entire structure has been issued and provided that appropriate construction documents and required statements have been filed. Approval of the Philadelphia Water Department for water and sewer availability and storm water management is required prior to the issuance of a foundation permit.
Issuance of a foundation permit for a structure shall be the basis for issuance of plumbing and electrical permits for such work below grade.
The owner of a structure for which a foundation and related permits have been issued shall proceed at the owner's risk without assurance that a permit for the entire structure will be granted. Issuance of a foundation permit shall not be construed to establish vested rights to the building or related permits on the part of any party to the construction project.
