These codes are minimum standards for construction and fire safety.  In addition to the adopted technical codes, there are requirements and regulations enforced by other City Departments and State Agencies. 

Plans and specifications must be of sufficient clarity to indicate the location, nature, and extent of the work proposed and shown in detail that it will conform to the provisions of the technical codes and all relevant laws, ordinances, rules, and regulations.

Any revisions or additions to the plans, once the Building permit has been issued, need to be made on the original drawing and new blueprints or photocopies submitted along with a $65.00 revision plan check fee.
