Plans Review is for any commercial, institutional, industrial, or multi-family residential project that requires three (3) or more reviewers. For instance, if you are renovating a commercial building and changing walls (structural), electrical, and plumbing—the project would require Plans Review.

Every Tuesday at noon is the submittal deadline. We send out the agenda (the plans we received that week) to all of the reviewers, and then post the plans digitally into the computer system. Paper copies are made available to the departments that require them. Then, staff from reviewing departments (Building Inspections, Public Utilities, Planning, Transit, etc.) looks at the plans and make sure that what is proposed meets the different codes and requirements for each reviewer. Comments from the reviewers are sent out to the contact person for the project and then discussed at the Plans Review meeting.
No. While coming to the meeting can be very informative and help you understand what the reviewers are looking for, attendance is not mandatory. We do ask that you notify Bruce Lonnee, Max Doty, or Samantha Eberhard at least 24 hours before the scheduled meeting time if you will not be attending.
Many projects require resubmittals. Have your plans revised to satisfy the comments from the reviewers and then submit with a completed Revision Form. Follow the instructions on the form for number of copies and other resubmittal requirements. Unlike the initial Plans Review submittal, a resubmittal does not have a specific deadline. Just get the plans to us whenever they are ready and we’ll get them to the different reviewers.
There are a number of resources available to help you through the review process. First, read the ACC Plans Review Handbook. It is full of information about the requirements of every reviewing department. For a helpful list of do’s and don’ts, check out the Top Ten Keys to Success in Plans Review. Also, feel free to contact the Planning Department (706-613-3515).
