Whether the project is a homeowner converting a garage or a developer constructing a high rise, we review projects for safety. Many residential and commercial projects require a building plan review for compliance with applicable Federal, State, and City codes, laws, and ordinances before permits can be issued.  Please collect all necessary documentation prior to starting a new application, failure to do so may result in a delay in processing your application.
