Job Description for Permit Technician

Permit technicians play an important role in the processes of building and construction, though they typically work in offices to perform both technical and clerical tasks for construction companies, usually in building regulation departments and especially for larger employers. They often answer calls, return calls, and meet with others in the industry to gain the proper permits for construction projects. They may also help customers deal with the permitting process, answer questions, and provide other needed information, and guide clients to the proper government offices when they cannot resolve concerns directly. They also also set up and plan appointments for inspections of construction projects and resolve zoning issues as necessary.
