CP Services


With several Certified Professionals (CP), GHL facilitates Building Permit issuance through the CP program in the City of Vancouver and City of Surrey.
The CP Program is an alternate ‘fast-track’ Building Permit process currently available in the City of Vancouver and the City of Surrey. This fast-track process allows Building and Occupancy Permits to be delivered faster due to the involvement of one of GHL’s Certified Professionals. The CP Program can save months at times of peak activity at the City Building Division. It is a system in which an Owner/Developer can retain an Architect or an Engineer who is certified to represent the Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) for ascertaining substantial compliance with the BC Building Code and local Bylaws, greatly simplifying and expediting the processing of Building and Occupancy Permit applications.
