Permit Submittal Roadblocks

Do not forget you will need to put a complete code summary on your cover sheet when submitting your building permit application package.
A client came to us last week for help because the reviewer would not begin the review process until the code summary was in the submittal documents.

A complete set of documents should have a code summary on the cover sheet of the drawings showing the current codes used to design the project. Most jurisdictions will require some form of a code summary. It can be most easily found if it is on the cover sheet.

The summary should look like this;

Code Summary:

  • 1997 Uniform Building Code
  • 1997 Uniform Mechanical Code
  • 1999 National Electrical Code
  • 1997 Uniform Plumbing Code
  • Occupancy Group B
  • Type VN Construction
  • One Story
  • Allowable Stories = 2
  • Area Square footage of building=7000
  • Allowable Area = 8000 square feet
