Q: Are Separate Permits Required for shell buildings and then each tenant space?

A: Yes. Each tenant that moves into or within a shell building is required to obtain a permit in order to issue a Certificate of Compliance for the tenant. This is true even if no construction work is required for the tenant to begin business. Since the shell was set up without specific tenant information, many code requirements were not reviewed. Now that specific tenant information is available, the occupant load can be established and exits can be identified. Occupancy group and division can also be established and building construction type can be confirmed.
