The BCD Permit System will be unavailable on Wednesday, October 29, 2014 from 7:00AM until 12:00PM, for a system update.  Please do not plan to use the BCD Permit System during this period.

This upgrade will enable the University of MN Building Code Division to provide mobile access to Building Code Inspector personnel allowing them to complete your construction inspections while on the job site.

For our Customers, the benefits include:
1 - Immediate inspection result visibility (The inspection results 
     will be immediately communicated to the BCD 
     system and an e-mail of the results sent to you).
2 - Enhanced consistency and clarity in the inspection resulting 
3 - Inspection records will be available to print immediately as
     needed and will reflect the current inspection status.
4 - Inspection results (Status) will be immediately visible on your
     User Account with the BCD when  your permit is selected.

Once completed, the BCD inspectors will begin phasing in the mobile applications over the next few months.
