Plan Review coordinates the approval processes for building permit review and issuance. Examiners can not design projects. They provide the following services:
- Coordinate the overall approval of plans with appropriate code disciplines (Electrical, HVAC, Zoning, etc.)
- Review building plans for conformance with state and federal building codes and local ordinances governing construction
- Answer questions about a design relating to code
