While it is permissible to submit schematic/preliminary and design development plans to this office by mail, it is customary and encouraged that an appointment be made for a sit-down review. Only one copy of the plan is required for review; however, the design professional may wish to bring an additional copy to record notes, changes and other comments. Final construction documents (one set) shall be mailed in and reviews will be done on a first-come, first-served basis. Due to the time required for a complete review and time commitments to other projects, sit-down reviews of final construction plans are not possible.
