The Costs of Plan Review

In the dynamic world of construction, each set of plans is precise and carefully followed for your project to come to life. The process of reviewing your plans is essential for the complete execution of the structural and architectural aspects of your building. Ensuring that your plans adhere to local building codes and regulations will avoid costly building delays or repairs. A well-constructed and executed plan not only facilitates a seamless building process but also avoids preventable issues and mistakes. 

Our administrator and engineers will be a dedicated contact for your plan recommendations and corrections. To educate further about each plan review route, visit our blog, “What is Plan Review?”. Within that blog, the overall process is outlined and scheduling procedures are highlighted. 

While understanding the benefits of plan review, cost is usually the main question on your mind. Legacy Engineering, being a northeast private provider, can review plans in the following jurisdictions: Clay County, Duval County, Nassau County, and St. Johns County.

Depending if your project is residential or commercial will determine the upfront fees for plan review.
