Plan Review, Permits and Inspections

1, 2 and 3 Family Residential Plans

Two sets of construction drawings are needed for review. For additions and new buildings, site plans must be submitted showing the location of the new work, grades, slope, sidewalks, driveways and parking, as applicable. The drawings are not required to be prepared or sealed by an architect or engineer. However, there is information that is required to be provided on the construction drawings that only a design professional can provide.

Two copies of documentation that show compliance with the International Energy Conservation Code must be submitted for all new construction, whether it is an addition to a house or new-house construction. Generally a RES-CHECK is submitted for this.

Additional requirements

  • Soils report for soil bearing pressure greater than 1500 psf
