The highest building permit was issued to Community Enhancement VII with Scull Construction as the contractor with a valuation of $ 14.1 million for the Department of Veterans Affairs clinic at 2165 Promise Road. This is followed by the permit for the Crisis Stabilization Unit for Pennington County with RCS Construction for $ 5.3 million.
