Commercial plans must be reviewed prior to the issuance of a permit. Plans must be complete and need to include MEP drawings. All plans must be stamped by a Colorado Architect or Engineer.
Online Application and Site plans MUST include legal description and county parcel number, which are available from the Assessor's office.
Completion time for initial plan review is approximately 2 weeks. Please review the requirements prior to submitting plans. Incomplete submissions will not be accepted.
Electronic Plan Review Submission
|Preliminary Plan Review Meeting (Optional)||
A commercial preliminary plan review meeting (in person, via phone or email) gives designers the opportunity to ask questions specific to their commercial projects and
get clarification on code related items prior to the formal submittal of plans. This type of meeting is beneficial for large and/or complex projects and can result in a more efficient review process. Please contact our plan review office to arrange a meeting.
|Requirements & Guidelines||
In order to receive a permit for your construction project, you must submit an online building application by submitting construction documents and any other required data. Construction documents should be of such
clarity to indicate location, nature and extent of work to be done and show in detail that it will conform to the provisions of the adopted building codes and all relevant laws and ordinances.
|Digital Plan Submittal
Digital plan review enables plan submittal, payment and the ability for staff to review/approve plans all electronically, reducing your trips to the office. This results in plans being reviewed as efficiently and effectively as possible.
1 - Log In or register to begin plan review application. Registration is required for the plan review system, which is separate from the contractor registration.
2 - To submit a new project you will need to fill out the application in its entirety.
3 - You will then be prompted to Pay online or invoice your plan review fees. (Plan reviews will not be put into the queue without Payment)
4 - After payment or invoicing is complete you will then be able to upload plans.
5 - There will be allowed only one initial upload, make sure all plans are uploaded at one time. We won't accept incomplete plans.
That will complete your commercial plan review submittal.
|Tracking the Progress||
The email address used when submitting plans will be periodically sent updates as the review process proceeds.
In addition, you may track the progress of your review online via your online account or through the public search side.
Please be aware that all commercial projects will require approval of other agencies and a completed routing sheet prior to issuing a permit.
Examples of agencies include Zoning, Utilities, Public Works, Fire Department that may have separate registration or fees.
You may call, email, create with submittal or come into our office to request a routing sheet. The routing needs to be completed before a permit
will be issued so feel free to start this process early.
Once Plans have been approved a job site set may be downloaded by the original submitter.
It is the responsibility of the Architect/Engineer(ie original submitter) to send a copy to the appropriate persons for printing.
If both routing and plans are complete and ready to issue the contractor may pull the permit either by visiting the office or submitting an application via email.
Please note that we will no longer accept paper plans. All commercial plans will be required to be submitted online.
As a reminder only the Original submitter can download plans for distribution, exceptions may be made on a case by case basis. We do not provide a set of printed plans.
