According to the Finnish law, a building permit must be obtained for construction work. The municipal Construction Supervision Unit provides assistance in applying for all kinds of construction permits. We process building permit applications, grant permits and take care of all statutory inspections up to the final inspection of the construction. As the appropriate authority, we see to that constructions are carried out according to applicable laws and regulations. Accordingly, we help you with your permit application process and supervise the construction. Our goal is to enable a good and safe built environment made possible with the help of town plans and local master plans, and to simultaneously take care of the legal safety of builders and their neighbours.
The municipal Construction Supervision Unit takes out fees for the services rendered. They are determined according to Construction Supervision Fees approved by the municipal Construction and Environment Committee.
Construction supervision is carried out according to the Finnish Land Use and Building Act and subordinate statutes, the municipality of Sipoo Building Regulations, and plans. The Construction Supervision Unit is the municipal building supervision authority acting under the municipal Construction and Environment Committee.
