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

Getting Started is as Easy as 1-2-3


  1. Send the required plans, specifications and other design documents along with an authorization for ICC to perform the plan
  2. Within 15 to 20 working days, ICC will respond with a comprehensive plan review report and checklist.
  3. If necessary, send the revised drawings with resolutions to the code deficiencies to ICC for a complimentary re-review.
