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. As a result, it can cause undue delay to the development community. Public agencies are dedicated to providing a high level of customer service while ensuring the integrity of design and construction. However, their staff can become overloaded, overwhelmed, and unable to keep the development moving forward efficiently. Accordingly, many jurisdictions recognize the importance of the construction schedule. They have implemented independent third-party plan review and inspection programs to help.
With the authorization of the jurisdiction, International Energy Conservation Consultants 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, our team forwards the approved sets to the jurisdiction. The jurisdiction will then issue the building permit.
At International Energy Conservation Consultants, no plan review is too complex or too large for our Architectural Engineering team. Our engineers and architects are licensed design professionals. They specialize in the review of commercial and residential energy (models, ASHRAE 90.1, ACCA Manuals J,S,D and REM/rate™). They also provide 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, while complex projects may take up to 10 business days. If you require expedited plan review assistance, please contact us. We will be happy to accommodate your request.
