Every plan review is prepared by licensed and ICC-certified engineers and architects who understand the ICC International and legacy model codes better than any other plan review service in the building industry.

Preliminary Plan Review Services

Designed to offer critical information for further plan development, a Preliminary Plan Review is performed when construction documents are still in the initial stages of development. This review is ideal for fast-track projects or foundation permit requests where a complete set of building plans and specifications are not available. This service includes the review of initial design code compliance including use and occupancy classification, type of construction, height and area calculations, means of egress, fire-resistance construction requirements and foundation design.

Complete Plan Review Services

With this service, plan reviewers perform a comprehensive review of design drawings and specifications to the disciplines requested. These include:

  • Detailed checklist of code compliance and violations
  • Follow-up consultations throughout construction
  • One complimentary re-review of reissued plans
