Express Review is a service that allows for faster examination of most commercial construction plans, including fit-ups and new buildings.

  • It is held each week on Tuesdays & Thursdays, with appointments beginning at 1:30 p.m.
  • Express Review can shave weeks off the time it takes to obtain a building permit. Typically, applicants may expect to receive permits within 1-3 business days of an approved Express Review. 
  • Cary continues to offer this service to assist those with commercial projects needing to meet financing deadlines and other timetables.
