Do I need a Plan?

The purpose of a plan is to assure the construction project is designed in compliance with the code. If there are issues of noncompliance, they may be addressed during the plan review process. This saves the applicant time and money as it is more economical to make revisions prior to the start of construction.

Construction documents may be submitted by the owner or the owner’s architect, engineer, contractor, or agent. The construction statutes or codes do not fix the responsibility for the submission of construction documents. However, the owner of the construction project has the responsibility to assure that it is done.
