MILESTONE 2 – BUILDING DEPARTMENT SUBMISSION
Upon completion of approximately 75% of the Construction Documentation
phase, the drawing package, including specifications, engineering drawings
and structural calculations, along with permit application fees, should
be submitted to the Building Department for Building Permit review. After
a period of time (often 4-6 weeks, but ultimately unpredictable), the
Building Official will respond to the Architect with either notification
of project approval or a request for plan revisions. In the latter case,
revised drawings are resubmitted for review.
Occasionally, this process will repeat, but more often, the Building Official
will approve the plans and make a building permit available for pickup
by the Building Owner or the Contractor.
