Independent Third Party Plan Review
What is Independent Third Party Plan Review?
At times, rapid development overwhelms building departments. Turnaround times and performance standards begin to slow and cause undue delay to the development community. Although public agencies are dedicated to providing a high level of customer service while ensuring the integrity of design and construction, their staff becomes overloaded, overwhelmed and unable to keep the development moving forward efficiently. Accordingly, many jurisdictions recognize the importance of the construction schedule and have implemented independent third party plan review and inspection programs.
With the authorization of the jurisdiction, IECC_LLC contracts directly with the applicant to provide plan review services. Once we have completed our reviews and ensured the plans are compliant with the state and local codes, IECC_LLC forwards the approved sets to the jurisdiction where they will issue the building permit.
No plan review is too complex or too large for the IECC_LLC Architectural Engineering team. Our engineers and architects are licensed design professionals, specializing in the review of commercial and residential energy (models, ASHRAE 90.1, ACCA Manuals J,S,D and REM/rate™); while also providing thorough reviews for the associated building sub-systems including Mechanical, Plumbing and Electrical services.

Turn Around Time?
Our performance standards depend upon the size, nature, and complexity of the project. Plan reviews on simple construction usually take 3 – 5 business days, while more complex projects may take up to 10 business days.
