Temporary construction trailers or construction office units (single unit or multiple unit compounds w/ decks) do not require full plan review. The GC shall first acquire an address from Mecklenburg County GIS Addressing at 704-336-6175, then a Zoning Use Permit directly from Zoning. The Electrician shall apply for an Electrical Permit to hook up power to the unit. A plumbing permit is required if water and/or sewer will be hooked up to the modular unit. Accompanying the electrical permit application is a copy of the Zoning Use Permit, and a letter on the GC's letterhead stating that the trailer is to be used exclusive by construction personnel & by personnel directly associated to the project ‐ Not for Public Use or Sales. The GC shall also post signage on site stating that the trailer is "Not for Public Use or Sales."
