WISPECT LLC® now offers permit application submission services to individuals and
companies wanting to submit for a Wisconsin Uniform Building Permit to build a new
one- or two-family dwelling in Wisconsin.
Over the years as a state-contacted UDC Inspection Agency administering and enforcing
Wisconsin’s Uniform Dwelling Code in various municipalities throughout the state,
we have seen the many reasons why permits are delayed or even sometimes denied because
of failing to submit the proper documentation to the authority having jurisdiction.
We can assist with ensuring the documentation required by zoning departments and
building inspection agencies is in order and code-compliant. For a very reasonable
fee WISPECT® can assist with:
We can assist with the design of your new home or if you already have a design in
mind, we can ensure it is code-compliant and showing all the information being required
by the authority having jurisdiction.
Heating and Electrical Plans
The Uniform Dwelling Code requires a heating layout to be submitted when making an
application for a Wisconsin Uniform Building Permit. Most jurisdictions require an
electrical plan as well.
Soil Erosion Plans
The Uniform Dwelling Code requires submission of a soil erosion control plan. One
of the quickest ways to get a project shutdown is failure to properly identify and
implement proper soil erosion control measures. Our service also includes an on-site
visit to evaluate if erosion control measures are necessary and the proper type.
Installation of Soil Erosion Control Measures (if necessary)
Completion of Energy Conservation Compliance Documentation.
The Uniform Dwelling Code requires that an energy conservation compliance certificate
is submitted when submitting for a Wisconsin Uniform Building Permit. We will submit
the latest version of Wisconsin’s REScheck compliance certificate showing compliance
with Wisconsin’s energy conservation standards.

addressed by Wisconsin’s Uniform Dwelling Code.)
Completion of all documentation required by the authority having jurisdiction to
be issued a Wisconsin Uniform Building Permit (Additional fees are required by the

The Uniform Dwelling Code requires a site plan to be submitted when submitting for
a Wisconsin Uniform Building Permit. When applying for a land-use or zoning permit
a site plan is also required showing set-backs and other requested information by
the Zoning Department. An additional fee does apply when submitting for a land-use
or zoning permit on behalf of the permit applicant.

installations may only be done by properly credentialed individuals.
