Why are plan checks performed?

Plan checks performed to ensure that the mandatory minimum requirements for structural safety, fire protection, energy conservation, exits, light and ventilation, site grading and handicap access, when required, are met. When such review is completed and any other necessary approvals have been received, you will be notified either to come in for your permit or, if needed, to amend your plans to meet the requirements.
