Building Department Submission


At approximately 80%-90% completion, a permit set will be generated for review by relevant building officials. These include the drawings and calculations, energy conformance compliance, specifications and permit review fees.

On residential projects, the detail will not be as comprehensive and will depend on the size and scope of the project.

After a period of time (often 4-6 weeks, but ultimately unpredictable), the building officials will respond to the Architect with either notification of project approval or a request for plan revisions. In the latter case, revised drawings are resubmitted for review. Occasionally, this process will repeat, but more often, the building official will approve the plans and make a building permit available for pickup by the Building Owner or the Contractor.
