ePlans is a web-based workflow and collaboration system that allows applicants and our staff to partner electronically during the plan review process. 

ePlans offers you an alternative to printing and shipping paper construction documents to us for review. With electronic plan review a growing trend in the marketplace, the ePlans system affords users several cost- and time-saving benefits including:

  • Uploading documents electronically from the convenience of your office anytime.

  • Notations by the plan reviewer are added as an overlay on the electronic plans to provide clear direction for required corrections.

  • Re-submitting corrected documents from the convenience of your office anytime.

  • Providing users immediate notification and receipt and access to approved, stamped plans once the review is complete.

How to use ePlans

ePlans requires some initial set-up. Instructions are included in the ePlans User Guide
