Building permits consists of only buildings and is split into:

• dwelling residential buildings
• and more dwelling residential buildings

A building permit is a permission to begin work on a building project. A permit is a good indicator of the workload for the building industry.

A dwelling is one room or a group of rooms included with its accessories in a permanent building or stucturally seperated intended by the way it has been constructed to be for private habitation. A dwelling should have a seperate access to a street. The access can be direct or via a common grounds. Rooms that are detached and meant for habitation that are to be used as part of the dwelling are counted as part of the dwelling. Therefore, a dwelling may be made up of seperate buildings within the same enclosure as long as they are inteded for habitation by the same private household. 

Any part of a dwelling used for residential purposes (e.g. kitchen) is included in the measurements of useful floor area. The useful floor area is measured within the external walls and does not include, “construction areas (e.g. areas of demarcation components, supports, columns, pillars, shafts, chimneys), — functional areas for ancillary use (e.g. areas occupied by heating and air-conditioning installations, or by power generators), — thoroughfares (e.g. areas of stairwells, lifts, escalators).”
