TDLR Project Verification: Per SB 484, commercial and multifamily projects with a construction value exceeding $50,000 must be registered with TDLR’s Architectural Barriers Division prior to submitting a permit application to a City for review. Without a TDLR project number that is verifiable, a permit application will not be accepted for review. For questions or further information, contact a technical information specialist by calling toll free at 1-877-278-0999 or by sending your inquiry via e-mail to techinfo.ab@tdlr.texas.gov.
