For a walk-thru plan review of new Alteration and Repair permits (that don't require Landscape and/or Fire Marshal review) for commercial projects less than $100,000 and are of a simple nature, the process is as follows
• Note that both the Landscape and Fire Marshal do not perform walk-thru services. For an additional fee and availability of personnel, the Fire Marshal can expedite the plan review on an overnight next-day/weekend basis.
• Make appointment at desired time and date.
• The plans/application must be brought to the second floor of the Ed Ball Building (214 North Hogan Street) for review and approval by Zoning, Concurrency, and Development Services, and then processed at the Plans Review counter to be assigned a temporary permit number before meeting with the examiner. This process must be done by the applicant, and may take an hour or more.
• Please allow adequate time when scheduling your plan review appointment. Depending on specific job requirements, a walk-in appointment may not result in the immediate issuance of a permit.
• Note that the following projects usually cannot be provided on a walk-thru basis and are required to be submitted across the counter for a full review:
o Tenant Build-outs
o Projects Requiring a Change of Use Certificate
o New buildings
• Common reasons for rejections of walk-thru permits:
o No drawings, or incomplete drawings
o No HVAC, Electrical, or Plumbing drawings - if any of these are being done, drawings must be provided
o Owner and Contractor notarized signatures missing from permit application
o No contractor has been selected. Note that tenants, corporations, and flippers are some of the typical entities that cannot use the Owner-Builder method of performing the work and must use a contractor.
• If you must cancel your appointment, it cannot be done at the below calendar. Please send an email to email@example.com for notification of the cancellation.
