Timothy Bennett is a Self-Cert Architect under the City of Chicago Self Certification Program.

The Self-Certification Permit Program simplifies the building permit process for eligible residential, business and mercantile and small assembly projects where Timothy Bennett Architects certifies code compliance.  Under this program the Department of Buildings plan reviews are streamlined or eliminated.

Additional forms and documentation are required for this program, but it can expedite permit approval for most projects. As of February 7, 2017 the average time for issuing a standard plan review permit (non self cert permit) for a small project was 64 days. Contact Timothy Bennett Architects today for more information on how we can help expedite your project.
